MOSCOW, June 30. /TASS/. The Liberal-Democratic Party of Russia (LDPR) supports the idea of creating a "black list " restricting the activities of the non-governmental organizations (NGOs), the party’s leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky told reporters on Tuesday. He thus commented on the proposal by the Head of the Federation Council Committee on International Affairs Konstantin Kosachev on compiling a "patriotic stop list" of foreign NGOs.
"We fully support [the initiative], because we have to draw up a list of all foreign organizations - they pursue an aggressive policy towards us and finance the destructive forces. Which means they are against Russia and even provide the funding so that the number of organizations engaged in such activities grows here," Zhirinovsky said.
He noted that the LDPR leaders would ask the State Duma Committee on Public Organizations to create such a stop list. According to Zhirinovsky, the most aggressive international organizations should be placed on it, including the National Democratic Institute for International Affairs, the International Republican Institute, the Open Society Institute (Soros Foundation), the American Councils for International Education and the National Endowment for Democracy.
"How the most aggressive international organizations can be identified? [They] are aligned with the US Department of State, with some US government agencies - these are the first signs," Zhirinovsky said. In his opinion, the most important "aggressive organizations" are the American NGOs.
