MOSCOW, May 15. /TASS/. Russia’s lower house of parliament, the State Duma, is due to consider in the second reading on Friday a toned-down bill on the so-called undesirable organizations in Russia.
A committee on constitutional legislation and state construction called to soften the bill in the first reading. According to the amendments approved for the second reading, international and foreign organizations can be considered undesirable if only they are non-governmental.
The document proposes giving the Prosecutor-General’s Office the right to acknowledge foreign organizations as undesirable if their activities threaten the security of Russia and public order or in an effort to "protect the constitutional system, morals, rights or legal interests of other people."
The decision on defining an organization undesirable should be agreed with Russia’s Foreign Ministry "based on information and documents provided by the internal affairs and security bodies" and also the executive powers.
Russia’s Justice Ministry will be tasked with compiling the black list. The maximum sentence for organizing the activity of such a foreign structure in Russia is eight years in jail.
