MOSCOW, June 23. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has pointed to the need for adopting clear criteria to determine whether this or that non-governmental organization is in great demand.
"It is quite obvious that there must be clear criteria to determine the areas of NGOs activity that are in the greatest demand in society," Putin said at a full-scale meeting of Russia’s Civic Chamber. He believes it is important these initiatives are being developed in close cooperation with representatives of the so-called "third sector."
Putin recalled that the Civic Chamber had come out with a proposal for updating the legislative control of the non-commercial sector, including the creation of a modern unified register of non-governmental organizations.
"The need for such changes emerged as a result of close analysis of NGOs activity," Putin said, adding that there were more than 220,000 of them in Russia.
