    Russia steps up pressure with 'foreign agent' campaign - CSMonitor.com

    The Russian government's list is growing of NGOs being targeted for receiving some foreign funds. No major NGOs have agreed to the label, suggesting a wave of shutdowns may be looming.

    If you take money from a guy like say George Soros then there is problem. NGOs getting foreign funds should be submitted to government scrutiny and if they are not doing anything wrong there is no need to cry foul.
