Another draft law aimed at NGOs submitted to the Duma
MOSCOW, September 11 - RAPSI. The Russian government has submitted to the State Duma a draft law on the transparency of self-regulating organizations, including non-governmental organizations which are classed as such based on membership, activities, service markets (goods or work), or field of service production (goods or work).
Further information on this can be found in the parliament's electronic documents database.
The draft law states which information is subject to publication. In particular, the draft law obligates self-regulating organizations to have their own websites and domain names, the rights to which must belong strictly to the organizations themselves.

The draft law stipulates the responsibility for the non-execution of the requirements as follows: for repeated non-execution or improper execution during the calendar year, the individuals responsible will be fined 20,000 - 100,000 rubles ($630 - $3160); legal entities will be fined 100,000 -300,000 rubles ($3160 - $9470).
