The possibility of exclusion of such organizations from this list is also considered. The activities of organizations such as Human Rights Watch may be prohibited in Russia.

The law on undesirable organizations may affect Carnegie Foundation, the non-governmental international organization for countering corruption Transparency International, Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International monitoring human rights observance.
