Approved Procedures for Registering Non-profit Organizations As Foreign Agents
The order of the Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation dated November 30, 2012 approved the procedure for the registry of non-profit organizations acting as a foreign agent.
The registry will be maintained in paper and electronic form. The electronic registry, in particular, reflects the full name of the agent, the information about the founders of the non-profit organization and its register number. Also, it includes data on foreign sources of monies and other assets, as well as the purpose of its spending.
To include the organization in the register, it must apply to the Ministry of Justice or its territorial body, either directly or in the form of mail with the list of contents. It can also be sent as an electronic document via the Internet, including through a single portal of public and municipal services.
