Russian America for Democracy in Russia recognized as 'undesirable' in Russia
The Russian Prosecutor General's Office announced the recognition of the activities of the American organization Russian America for Democracy in Russia as “undesirable” on the territory of the country, said Russian State Duma deputy Andrei Lugovoi. Writes about this Meduza.
In his Telegram channel, the deputy emphasized that this decision was made in response to his official appeal.
The official website of Russian America for Democracy in Russia notes that this organization unites Russian citizens in the United States who oppose wars started by the Russian Federation and express support for freedom and democracy in Russia.
The organization, among other things, raises funds to help the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) and citizens of Ukraine, and also implements a project called “Anti-propaganda”, the purpose of which is to uncover the events surrounding the Russian invasion of Ukraine and its consequences for Russians.
However, Lugovoi described the organization as “a clone of the extremist Anti-Corruption Foundation.”
“The goal of the organization is to create a protest force in Russia to dismember the country, to prepare a campaign to transfer power to foreign invaders. The idea and finances of the project are the US State Department, and the executors are fugitive traitors,” the deputy said.
