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.
SOVA Center was fined 300 thousand rubles for having failed to voluntarily register itself as a "foreign agent", before that was done by the Ministry of Justice. Unfortunately, we have lost the appeal.
Now we are to pay a considerable sum before mid-July. Please read for details.
