The Russian government department responsible for maintaining the ‘foreign agent’ register has added several more individuals and organisations to its list, including Svetlana Gannushkina, the well-known human rights activist who heads the Civic Assistance Committee and is a laureate of the Moscow Helsinki Group’s human rights award. RoskomSvoboda, an NGO whose experts have for many years worked with the Moscow Helsinki Group, was also designated a ‘foreign agent.’
