New Law Could Restrict Ministries in Russia

Ad Feedback

Russia's parliament has passed a new law restricting the work of non-government organizations (NGOs) and other groups that receive international support.

The bill forces such groups to register as "foreign agents" and file quarterly reports about their activities. Failure to comply can result in large fines and possibly jail time.

Critics say the law, passed this week, is aimed at making the work of NGOs more difficult, to intimidate them, and tarnish their image.

The U.S.-based group Russian Ministries works with church leaders throughout the former Soviet Union.

Russian Ministries Vice President for Ministry and Church Relations Wally Kulakoff will talk more about the new law, on Christian World News, July 20.
