Russia’s ‘foreign agents’ law to include ‘third parties’ who assist ‘foreign agents’ — even unintentionally

Source: Meduza

Russian authorities plan to add a “third parties” category to the law on “foreign agents,” reports TASS, referencing a report by Deputy Justice Minister Oleg Sviridenko. Those considered to be a “third party” may be subject to a fine.

According to Sviridenko, the “third parties” category will not apply to “foreign agents” or those affiliated with them, but would include those who assist current or future “foreign agents” — even unintentionally.

Sviridenko also explained that, in addition to foreign funding, the “foreign agents” label would be given to those who provide technical, social media, or advertising support.
