The Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation declared the “European Network of Election Observation Organizations” undesirable
The Prosecutor General’s Office declared the activities of the international non-governmental organization European Network of Election Monitoring Organizations (ENEMO) undesirable in the territory of the Russian Federation.
“The reason for this decision was that the activities of ENEMO pose a threat to the foundations of the constitutional order and security of the Russian Federation,” the Prosecutor General said in a statement.
Information about ENEMO has been transferred to the Ministry of Justice to be included in the list of undesirable organizations, the Prosecutor General’s Office said.
At the time of this writing, ENEMO was not on the list of the Ministry of Justice . The European Network of Election Observation Organizations will become the 48th organization on this list.
ENEMO (“European Network of Election Observation Organizations”) is a group of 18 civil society organizations representing 16 countries of Eastern and Central Europe and Central Asia. ENEMO members observed 200 national elections and trained over 200,000 observers, according to the organization’s website. Observers from ENEMO in recent years, among other things, have worked in the Ukrainian and Moldovan elections at various levels.
