"Mashr" excluded from list of “foreign agents”

The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) of Russia has notified the Ingush human rights activist Magomed Mutsolgov about the exclusion of his “Mashr” human rights organization from the register of non-profit organizations (NPOs), performing the functions of a "foreign agent".

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that in December 2015, the "Mashr" was included into the register of "foreign agents". A month before, its office and the house of its head Magomed Mutsolgov were searched.

In his post "Russia’s MoJ: ‘Mashr’ is not a ‘foreign agent’" Mr Mutsolgov has published a photo of the MoJ’s notification reading that the “Mashr” was excluded from the register of “foreign agents” "in accordance with sub-point two of point 7.1, Article 32, of the Federal Law" On NPOs”. According to this point, an NPO is excluded from the register if "according to outcomes of a check it was established that the NPO has not received money and other property from foreign sources and (or) has not participated in political activities in the territory of the Russian Federation."

On April 18, Magomed Mutsolgov noted in the above post that "the authorities have in fact recognized that the ‘Mashr’ operates within the framework of the law."
