Russland-Analysen. Wie die Gesetzgebung uber "auslandische Agenten" die Zivilgesellschaft und die Sozialpolitik in Russland andert

Iss. Nr 265: Die Burgergesellschaft in Russland. Russland-Analysen, 2013.
Tarasenko A., Белокурова Е. В.
Under the general editorship: H. Schröder.

The adoption of federal law on "foreign agencies" is explained by the reaction of political regime on civic activity and mobilization of Russia citizens after unfair elections in 2011-2012. This argumentation based on the fear of “colored revolutions“ is transmitted by political elite. Another argument deals with international politics and justifies the pressure on NGOs financed by western foundations as a need to protect Russian sovereignty and independence from external influence. Despite of the inadequacy of these arguments their promoters probably believe in them as well as Russian citizens which support these ideas. The problem however lies not only in thread of fighting with imaginary danger. It results in disruption of NGOs activity and their performance in society and social service provision.
