The Russian Foreign Agent Law


The Russian NGO community has been in limbo since the so-called ‘foreign agents’ law was enacted on 21 November 2012. From February 2013 an unprecedented wave of inspections hit thousands of NGOs across the country; the consequences of which are now being appealed in various courts. However, the most important challenge presented by this law is the general sense of alienation and of the undermining of human rights groups at a time of concerted attack on fundamental freedoms in Russia.
