The Prosecutor General’s Office recognized the Czech “Society for Freedom of Information” as “undesirable”

The General Prosecutor’s Office of the Russian Federation recognized the activities of the Czech non-governmental organization Spolecnost Svobody Informace as “undesirable” in Russia , according to the agency’s website.

The prosecutor’s office said that the work of the organization “poses a threat to the foundations of the constitutional order and security of the Russian Federation.”

The prosecutor’s office asked the Ministry of Justice to include the Freedom of Information Society in the  register of “undesirable organizations. The Czech organization will be the 36th on the list.

According to information from  open sources , Spolecnost Svobody Informace was registered in Prague in 2015. The organization provides free access to information of importance to society, helps government agencies improve relevant laws, helps people whose rights to access information have been violated, and is engaged in educational activities.

The Czech Republic, together with the United States, is included in the Russian list of “unfriendly” countries, which was formed in May on the instructions of Russian President Vladimir Putin. The country was included in the list after the Czech authorities accused the Russian special services of  explosions at an ammunition depot  in the village of Vrbetice.
