MOSCOW, July 8. /TASS/. Russia’s Federation Council will consider during a plenary session on Wednesday a petition to the Russian Prosecutor-General’s Office and the Foreign Ministry regarding the patriotic "stop list" of foreign and international NGOs, which, according to senators, are carrying out "soft aggression" against Russia. TASS has obtained the text of the relevant draft decree.
Lawmakers say that over the past quarter of a century, Russia "came up against a power attack on its national interests" aimed at affecting the internal political situation in the country, "undermining the patriotic unity" of its people and disrupting the integration processes in the CIS involving Russia. This pressure is exerted with the help of the "non-governmental organizations, including those funded from the state budgets of foreign states. According to senators, this gives one the right to talk about the "soft aggression against Russia," the document says.
The "stop list" includes 12 organizations, among them the Soros Foundation, the National Endowment for Democracy, the MacArthur Foundation, the Freedom House and the East European Democratic Center.
