An election monitoring group in Russia is being sued by the government for not registering as a foreign agent.

The NGO Golos gathered evidence of alleged substantial fraud at the polling booths in the last parliamentary election.

The prosecution is the first of its kind under a law introduced last year that requires NGOs that receive funding from abroad to register as so-called "foreign agents".
