Navalnys 3 entities, including the Anti-Corruption Foundation, officially banned in Russia


The Russian Ministry of Justice has included the Anti-Corruption Foundation, the Foundation for the Protection of Citizens’ Rights (both are also recognized as foreign agents) and the Navalny headquarters in the list of banned organizations, according to the register on the agency website.

MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik – August 06, 2021) The Russian Ministry of Justice has included the Anti-Corruption Foundation, the Foundation for the Protection of Citizens’ Rights (both are also recognized as foreign agents) and the Navalny headquarters in list of organizations, according to the register on the agency’s website.

This decision was taken following the trial of the prosecutor’s office by the Moscow City Court, and then confirmed by the First Court of Appeal of the General Jurisdiction. The court agreed with the assessment that these entities created the conditions for a “color revolution”, regularly staging unauthorized gatherings that resulted in riots involving teenagers.

The defense considers the court’s decision to be unreasonable. According to lawyer Ivan Pavlov, the alternation of powers is a basic constitutional principle, the concept of “color revolution” is not legal and cannot be used as an argument in such a dispute, and the right of peaceful assembly is also enshrined in the Constitution.

The extremist status will make it impossible for these organizations to work in Russia, now all their symbols are banned, and the media will have to stress that they are banned when mentioning them. In this case, criminal liability will threaten both the organizers of these NGOs and the simple participants and donors.
