SOVA Center for Information and Analysis
SOVA Center for Information and Analysis is a Moscow-based Russian nonprofit organization founded in October 2002.
SOVA Center conducts research and informational work on nationalism and racism, relations between the churches and secular society, and political radicalism. We are also interested in human rights issues, especially government misuse of counter-extremism measures.
On July 13 SOVA Center paid the 300 thousand rubles fine for having failed to voluntarily register itself as a "foreign agent", before that was done by the Ministry of Justice.
We asked our readers for help and the amount of 59418 rubles 72 kopecks arrived in our accounts. We are deeply grateful to everyone for their help.
Unfortunately, the sum we got was not enough, so if you are still willing to help, the same bank accounts can be used (see for details).21.07.2017
