MOSCOW, June 4. /TASS/. Russian Justice Minister Alexander Konovalov said on Thursday he sees no grounds now for removing the Dynasty Foundation from the NGO foreign agents list.
"No," Konovalov said, answering a question whether the ministry will revise its decision on the Dynasty Foundation.
Further actions may come in line with the procedure, Konovalov said. "If funding from abroad ends," the minister stressed.
The Dynasty Foundation, which develops fundamental science and education in Russia, together with the Liberal Mission Foundation was included in the NGO register of foreign agents on May 25.
Public figures and business representatives have launched an active campaign in support of the foundation.
Businessman Dmitry Zimin, who founded the organization in 2002, has criticized the decision and announced plans to stop channeling funds for the organization from his personal foreign bank accounts.
The Dynasty Foundation’s fate will be decided by its council at the meeting on June 8. Zimin has refused to file a lawsuit against the decision of the Russian authorities.
Konovalov earlier said he admitted that the organization could be removed from the register. "We see no threat for the legal standing of this organization," Konovalov told reporters on May 27.
