Kremlin critic Navalny's group declared 'foreign agent': governmentRussian authorities Wednesday declared the organisation run by opposition leader Alexei Navalny a “foreign agent”, the justice ministry said on its website. Navalny’s Anti-Corruption Foundation, which often publishes investigations into state officials, will now be subject to increased oversight and will have to present itself as a “foreign agent” on official documents. Russia started a controversial list of foreign agent organisations, which in Russian implies spying for a foreign government, in 2012.
