Russia warns US as NGO blacklisted as ‘undesirable’
“Russia has said it will not tolerate ‘interference’ by foreign organisations after it put a US pro-democracy foundation on a blacklist.
The National Endowment for Democracy (NED), funded by the US Congress, is the first organisation to be labelled ‘undesirable’ under a new Russian law.
Russia’s Foreign Ministry warned that ‘we will never tolerate mentoring and open interference in our affairs by foreign structures’.
US officials condemned Russia’s move.”
