MOSCOW, July 3. /TASS/. The Russian Foreign Ministry supports the idea of creating a "stop list" of foreign NGOs, but this will require serious inter-agency work and analysis, Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov told a session of the Federation Council on Fridady.
"The Foreign Ministry has long been monitoring the situation in this area," he said. "A substantial number of foreign structures are not actually NGOs, everything boils down to the name." "We believe that the passing of the law on undesirable organizations is a step in the right direction. It substantially complements and develops the law on foreign agents passed in 2012, which concerned mostly Russian NGOs," Gatilov said. "Now the logical chain is being locked, and foreign international NGOs have been brought to the fore."
"Of course, this work will require some time, there will be a lengthy analysis and consultations," Gatilov said. "The recognition of activities of foreign or international NGOs in Russia undesirable presupposes serious inter-agency work to collect and analyze different types of information.".
