MOSCOW, June 23. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has said it is necessary to consider the issue of granting benefits to non-profit organizations (NGOs).
"We badly need non-profit organizations, which are a more subtle tool of achieving a balance [of public interests], " Putin told a plenary session of Russia’s Civic Chamber. "We have definitely supported and will support this activity, but some benefits, certain support is needed, I have no doubt about it."
The president admitted that the NGOs often faced pressure from the fiscal authorities whilst their activities were not aimed at making profit. On the other hand, Putin noted to the underlying risks: as soon as benefits are granted, industries may crop up under the guise of public activity producing everything - "from nails to diamonds".
