Russian NGO targeted under new law

Golos is the only election watchdog that is independent of the Kremlin.

    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".
