MOSCOW, December 27 (RAPSI) – The Supreme Court of Russia believes that denial of democratic principles, cries for war and discrimination are sufficient reasons for liquidation of non-governmental organizations (NGOs), a ruling of the court’s plenum reads on Tuesday.

The Supreme Court, however, notes that there is no list of grave violations in Russian legislation that lead to liquidation of NGOs and each court should resolve the matter individually. The court announced that violations of rights and freedoms of a person guaranteed by principles of international law in accordance with Russia’s Constitution suffice for liquidation of organization.

Denial of fundamental democratic principles, rights and freedoms as well as propaganda of war, discrimination, enmity, violence, inciting of ethnic, racial or religious hatred are also included in the list of reasons for NGO’s liquidation. Using name of governmental structure in the name of NGO was also listed as grave violation.
