Legal Resource for Russian NGOs (www.hrrcenter.ru) presents a report done by NGO Lawyers Club «Russian NGOs After the Foreign Agents Law: Sustaining Civic Activism in an Adverse Setting», from May, 15, 2016.

Draconian reforms passed in Russia since 2012 have drastically closed space for civic activism and exposed the country’s NGO community to ever-evolving legal risks that threaten its very existence. In particular, laws against “foreign agents” and “undesirable organizations” have increasingly been weaponized to close civil society organizations of all kinds through fines and forced liquidations. Such laws have also led to a mass exodus of the large international donors who have funded Russian civil society for decades. In the period from 2012 to 2015 the number of actually operating NGOs in the country went down by a third.

In the report you can find Top 5 Problems facing Russian Civil Society, needs of the NGOs named as foreign agents and other.

In 2014 the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation validated the foreign agents law as constitutional.

In the period from 2012 to 2015 the number of actually operating NGOs in the country went down by a third.

The legislation that the government has been introducing since 2012 has been bringing new restrictions on NGOs, in particular, allowing state bodies to use laws “unlawfully” by running checks of NGOs whenever they can, hold them administratively liable and impose big fines on NGOs for what they have not done.

In general, 2015 and the beginning of 2016 are hallmarked with the increased control by the Government (very often this control is arbitrary) of the operation of the Russian NGOs, and implementation of new laws to make this operation even more complicated, which challenged the legal existence and operation of NGOs in Russia in general, although NGOs are an integral element of the Russian civil society.
