SOVA Center was fined 300 thousand rubles for having failed to voluntarily register itself as a “foreign agent”, before that was done by the Ministry of Justice. Unfortunately, they lost the appeal.
Now they have to pay a considerable sum before mid-July and would be grateful for any help.
SOVA Center for Information and Analysis is a Moscow-based Russian nonprofit organization that was founded in October 2002 by a group of people working for the Panorama Center for Information and Research and the Moscow Helsinki Group.
SOVA Center conducts informational and research work on such topics as nationalism and xenophobia, relations between the churches and the secular society, and political radicalism.
