Administration of the President of Russia
Speaking at the plenary session of the Valdai Discussion Club, the Russian leader noted that his acquaintances are engaged in charity work, and they are being led to the law on foreign agents. He has promised to revisit his vague criteria.
“We do not have a mass enrollment in foreign agents in Russia, the danger of this is greatly exaggerated,” he said.
Putin recalled that this is not about the position taken by this or that figure or the media, but about foreign funding. The law does not prohibit them from having their own opinions and conducting activities, he stressed.
