Russian NGOs decry ban on 'undesirable' US foundation

Russian activists on Wednesday blasted an official decision to label the US National Endowment for Democracy an “undesirable” organisation, cutting them off from a key source of funding. Prosecutors on Tuesday named the US Congress-funded NED the first “undesirable” organisation under a controversial new law to ban foreign groups deemed a threat to Russia. Critics say the move — which bars the NED from operating in Russia or giving funding to Russian groups — is the latest step in a Kremlin drive against civil society that is being fuelled by anti-Western rhetoric over the crisis in Ukraine.
