MOSCOW, May 26 /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin is aware of the situation around the Dynasty non-profit foundation, Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday.
Putin raised the subject during his meeting with business representatives earlier on Tuesday but it should not be regarded as any formal instruction, Peskov explained.
"I would not say that Putin knows all the details. I would not say that it’s the main item on his agenda," the Kremlin spokesman said.
"The problem of the Dynasty non-profit foundation was raised at Putin’s meeting with Mr. Titov, the Russian ombudsman for the rights of entrepreneurs, and his partners today. The president said he did not know why that foundation had been included in the list of foreign agents," the Kremlin press secretary explained.
"The president said it was necessary to have a look at the problem," Peskov said.
Russia’s Justice Ministry on Monday listed the scientific and educational Dynasty Foundation of businessman Dmitry Zimin and the Liberal Mission educational foundation led by research advisor of the Higher School of Economics (HSE) Yevgeny Yasin in the register of foreign agents. Now there are already 67 NGOs listed as foreign agents in Russia.
Media reports said earlier the Dynasty foundation disagreed with including it to the list of foreign agents explaining that the organization used the funds of Zimin from his accounts abroad rather than of foreign sponsors.
The Dynasty Foundation, founded by Zimin in 2002, seeks talented scientists and backs their ideas and projects in the natural and social sciences. The organization has 20 programs and projects in the sphere of the development of fundamental scientific research and education in Russia.
