Kremlin bans Khodorkovsky's Open Russia movement
The Institute of modern Russia (USA) and the social network movement Open Russia (Great Britain) are included in the same list.
The Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation recognized the Open Russia organization (Great Britain) created by Mikhail Khodorkovsky, undesirable. This reported on the department’s website.
Besides, several other foreign NGOs were included in the ‘black’ list, among which there were the Institute of modern Russia (USA) and the social network movement Open Russia (Great Britain).
Supervising department believes that activity of these organizations involves “incitation of protest performances and destabilization of an internal political situation” that can provide threat for the state.
Earlier, the police warned Muscovites from participation in a protest on April 29 organized by the Open Russia.
Meanwhile, Khodorkovsky told RBC that the General Prosecutor’s Office’s decision will not affect plans to carry out the protest on April 29 in any way: “Because of such reaction people will only be more motivated. I am a citizen of Russia, this resolution will not influence my personal activity in any way. The rest — just technical questions, it’s nothing”, the former head of Yukos declared.
New details appear in the case against Samara prosecutor Andrei Pavlov. These details indicate close ties between the regional law enforcement system and criminal world. The main element of their relations is money. This confirms once again: neither reforms nor salary hikes for law enforcement officials can eliminate the trivial human greed. The main principle of corrupt officers is: if the position allows to make ‘side’ money, you must do so.
Also the top 15 largest executors of state orders among individual entrepreneurs, many of which have billions of turns, includes a food supplier for schools, kindergartens and penitentiary colonies in the Chelyabinsk region and the main pharmacist in the same region.
