The activities of NDI are a threat to the fundamentals of the constitutional order and security of Russia, as it is indicated in the statement of the Prosecutor General’s Office.

NDI was founded in 1983. Currently the organization is headed by Madeleine Albright, who served as the US Secretary of State from 1997 to 2001. The organization aims at enhancing civic participation, increasing openness and competition of political systems, developing effectiveness and accountability of power in the world, according to the NDI website. The law allowing you to assign an undesirable status to foreign and international non-governmental organizations if their activities pose threat to the foundations of the constitutional order, defense or security of Russia entered into force in Russia in summer of 2015.

The organizations recognized undesirable are not allowed to work in Russia. The register of such organizations is kept by the Ministry of Justice. The register published on the Ministry website currently includes four NGOs. The first in the list was the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) included into it in July 2015. In December the General Prosecutor’s Office acknowledged the activities of the US-Russian Foundation for Economic and Legal Development and the foundations “Open Society” and “Promotion” founded by the billionaire George Soros to be undesirable in Russia.
