The Russian Justice Ministry has expanded its “foreign agent” list by adding writer Linor Goralik and human rights activist Sergey Krivenko.
The list also now includes:
- Public figure Andrey Piontkovsky
- Deputy Chair of the Oirat-Kalmyk People’s Congress Vladimir Dovdanov
- Economist Andrey Illarionov
- Activist of the Free Yakutia Foundation Sarylgana Kondakova
- Writer Tatyana Sotnikova
The Russian Prosecutor General’s Office believes that all newly inducted “foreign agents”, except for Illarionov, publicly opposed the full-scale invasion of Ukraine. Andrey Illarionov “promoted” posts made by “foreign agents” and “false information” about Russian authorities, the statement reads.
