Putin Signs Russian Law To Shut Down ‘Undesirable Organizations’

Just a couple of steps ahead of Obama…

Via Fox News:

Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a bill Saturday giving prosecutors the power to declare foreign and international organizations “undesirable” in the country and shut them down.

 

Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International have condemned the measure as part of an “ongoing draconian crackdown which is squeezing the life out of civil society.”

 

The law is part of a campaign to stifle the dissent that intensified after Putin began his third term in 2012. His return to the presidency had been accompanied by mass street protests that Putin accused the U.S. of fomenting. Russia suspects of Western intentions have been further heightened because of tensions over Russia’s role in the conflict in Ukraine. More
