Defense: Banned! — Russia adds three more « NGOs» to its list of undesirables


Russia’s Attorney General has declared that three humanitarian NGOs created by the family of Mikhaïl Khodorkovski (photo) are not welcome in Russia:

- Open Russia (United Kingdom) (directors: Henry Kissinger and Lord Jacob Rothschild);
- Open Russia Civic Movement (United Kingdom); and
- Institute of Modern Russia (United States).

They are added to the other seven «NGOs» that have been proscribed under the Law of July 2015:
- National Endowment for Democracy (NED);
- OSI Assistance Foundation (George Soros);
- Open Society Foundation (George Soros); and
- US-Russia Foundation for Economic Advancement and the Rule of Law (a US-Russian foundation).
- International Republican Institute (IRI/NED);
- Media Development Investment Fund (Nato);
- National Democratic Institute for International Affairs (NDI/NED).

Working together with Nato, the associations of Mikhaïl Khodorkovski have led a campaign for three years to direct the people’s mind to the following issues:
- “fake news”;
- the manipulation of alternative Western websites; and
- the intervention of Russian Secret Services in the US and French elections. They are also leading a campaign in Russia aimed at discrediting in advance the forthcoming elections [1].

After the CIA has rolled out coup d’etats, dressed up as “coloured revolutions”, several States have been empowered by their national law to proscribe these “NGOs” (which are nothing other than bodies set up by the government) used by Anglo-Saxon secret services.
