NPOs will oblige to agree on programs of fight against HIV with the authorities?


Such bill of Ministry of Justice concerns the non-profit organizations having foreign financing or which are carrying out programs with foreign participation of the Photo: DPA/TASS Ministry of Justice wants to strengthen control over foreign programs of fight against HIV and to oblige non-profit organizations which are engaged in prevention, to agree on the programs with the authorities. If not to approve the program, but the NPO will break the ban, she is threatened by elimination. Such bill has developed Ministry of Justice. It is about those NPOs which have foreign financing or carry out programs with foreign participation. And foreign financing offers to consider means which the NPO receives not only from the foreign companies, but also from citizens — even from Russians who receive money from abroad.
