President of the Conference of INGOs concerned about the lawsuits against Memorial

The President of the Conference of INGOs and the members of the Standing Committee are deeply concerned with the news that a lawsuit has been filed to liquidate the International Memorial Society, an INGO with participatory status with the Council of Europe, on the grounds of repeated violations of the Russian Federation's leglislation on "foreign agents".

They urge Russia to repeal this discriminatory legislation and appeal to the Russian authorities to stop the prosecution of Memorial and ask all relevant bodies of the Council of Europe for their aid in this matter.
