MOSCOW, June 8. /TASS/. The independent public board of the Dynasty Foundation has postponed the announcement of a decision on whether to end or continue the activity of the organization, which has been put on the NGO foreign agents list, a member of the board said on Monday.

"The decision has been delayed for two weeks or up to a month to prepare the necessary documents. The exact date has not been set," said Yevgeny Yasin, the president of the Liberal Mission Foundation.

The Dynasty Foundation’s president and founder, Russian businessman Dmitry Zimin, 82, participated in the discussion via Skype, Yasin said, refusing to give further details.

The beleaguered 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.

Media reports said earlier Zimin has left Russia, but he may return to the country, as he is currently on vacation.

Zimin, who founded the Dynasty in 2002, has earlier announced plans to stop channeling funds for the organization from his personal foreign bank accounts. He has refused to file a lawsuit against the decision of the Russian authorities.
