Russia to Create List of Banned 'Extremist' Symbols

Russia will compile a list of extremist symbols that are prohibited for use by companies, media and NGOs.

      The list will be drafted as a result of Justice Ministry-sponsored amendments to the law against extremist activity.

      The descriptions of symbols of public, religious and other organizations forbidden by the court will be posted on the websites of the executive authorities that are responsible for registering public and religious organizations. The Federal Service for Intellectual Property (Rospatent) is currently working on the list.

      The new legislation was prompted by the need to regulate symbols used by NGOs. The ministry has also proposed adding a clause to the NGOs law stating that their symbols should not resemble those of political parties or banned organizations. NGO symbols also shouldn't defile Russia’s flag, national anthem or emblem.
