Organizations linked to Russian opposition leader declared extremist

Moscow, Jun 10 (Prensa Latina) Moscow Court declared two organizations linked to opposition leader Alexei Navalny as extremist, a decision that outlaws them and bans them from operating in the national territory, local media reported on Thursday.

By court decision, the Anti-Corruption Foundation (FBK) and the Civil Rights Protection Fund (FZPG), two non-profit organizations, were eliminated, the Court ruled.

The trial was held behind closed doors because secret information was presented, criminal authorities explained. Both organizations were previously classified as foreign agents.

The opposition leader’s network of regional offices was also classified as extremist, and the suspension of activities of the three organizations must be fulfilled immediately, the Court told Sputnik news agency.

According to the District Attorney’s Office, these organizations seek Russia’s social and political destabilization and aim to change the country’s constitutional order. The FBK and Navalny’s offices were accused of regularly organizing unauthorized events that ended in riots involving minors.
