US 'deeply troubled' by Russia's NGO law

The United States said it was “deeply troubled” after Russian President Vladimir Putin officially enacted a controversial law banning what Moscow deems to be “undesirable” non-governmental organizations. Under the highly controversial law, passed by the Russian parliament this week, authorities can ban foreign NGOs and go after their employees, who risk up to six years in prison or being barred from the country. The move has been widely condemned by human rights groups, and critics have said that the vague wording of the law could also allow officials to target foreign businesses working in Russia.
