GOLOS Suspended Refuses to Tell Where Support Money Comes From…

GOLOSMOSCOW – Russia closed the door of GOLOS (a NGO – Non Governmental Organization) for six months this last week. GOLOS refused to register as a “foreign agent” under Russian law…

The Moscow-based group, GOLOS, publicized fake evidence of fraud and paid foreign dissidents to riot in a 2011 parliamentary vote. Then opposition in Russia having been informed of the riot plans, joined to make waves against Putin…

GOLOS who refuses to tell exactly where their money to operate comes from, has said that to do so would jeopardize their future workings in Russia. GOLOS without a doubt is known to receives most of its funding from the United States and Europe, this is why they say that they do not have to oblige the law, as the law interferes with their operation and movement. That the right for them to do as they please is above and beyond all else and Russia is nothing but using cold-war tactics to suppress the NGO’s ability to do its job…

GOLOS makes it clear that they are above the law and refuse to follow the laws of Russia…

So GOLOS is the first non-governmental organization (NGO) to have its operations suspended under the law Putin signed last July as part of a drive to decrease the political efforts by Western countries to meddle in Russian politics…

Now a fact is that GOLOS gets much of its money from USAID – (Who provides economic, development and humanitarian assistance around the world in support of the foreign policy goals of the United States.) USAID is well known for interfering in political situations all over the world and trouble with a capital T  – is involved with this group…

For GOLOS to admit all the ways it gets money would incriminate the NGO, as just its money suppliers is enough to tell you the real motives behind what is going on…

GOLOS is a very bad political issue in Russia and if GOLOS had done what they were suppose to be really here for and that is to observe elections and to record real things that happen. To help give lidget information to Russia to help grow and guide them for future elections, then all would still be good. But GOLOS has been caught falsifying information, spreading money around to help incite radical behavior and last but not least – they tried to interfere in the Russian presidential elections to try to determine a overthrow of Putin…

Actually Russia has been nice to GOLOS and if this had happened in the US. The situation would be silent, covered up and brutally crushed by the Admin of America…

I always think about the wussies in the American politics and they say things like, “If you do nothing wrong then why not tell us?”

Well American backed GOLOS: To take a word from our leaders in America – the ones who pay your bills, “If you are doing nothing wrong, then why not tell Russia where your money comes from?”

If it was up to me: I would close their doors for ever and then any new NGO’s would be screened and checked out beforehand. Then they would be kept on a lease. To let a foreign NGO run amok within your borders is just asking for trouble and political trouble is the American way. Just look at America and you will see what I mean…

Actually as always, Moscow is being very nice and lenient to NGO’s and other agencies like this. That is part of the issue and Moscow causes their own issues, by allowing the lackadaisical situation…

    A Russian justice ministry official on Monday claimed that controversial spot checks on NGOs are needed as many operate as a “front” for illicit activity.

    MOSCOW, June 26 (RIA Novosti) – The Russian Justice Ministry has suspended the activity of independent election monitor Golos for failing to register as a “foreign agent,” the ministry said Wednesday.

    The ministry issued a suspension order on Tuesday, halting the NGO’s operations until December 25.

    Legislation that came into force in November obliges all non-governmental organizations in Russia to register as “foreign agents” if they are involved in any kind of political activities and receive funding from foreign sources.

    Golos has been prohibited from holding public events and will have its bank accounts frozen, except for contract settlements, compensation for losses, and the payment of fines, the Justice Ministry said in a statement.

    MOSCOW, July 1 (RIA Novosti) – A Russian justice ministry official on Monday claimed that controversial spot checks on NGOs are needed as many operate as a “front” for illicit activity.

    Anna Kotova, deputy head of the Russian Justice Ministry’s NGO affairs department, said that “a huge number of NGOs” operate outside the law, although she did not give any concrete statistics.

    She gave the example of a veterans’ association in Russia’s western exclave of Kaliningrad that engaged in commercial activity and had a turnover of billions of rubles but, she said, did not pay tax.

    Kotova added that this organization’s activities had been uncovered during a spot check carried out by the ministry in conjunction with the tax authorities.

    Since March, NGOs across Russia have been subject to random inspections or spot checks which observers link to a law introduced in November obliging NGOs that engage in “political” activity and receive foreign funding to register as “foreign agents.”

    On June 26, the international advocacy group Human Rights Watch (HRW) issued a statement saying that Russia’s authorities are using the law to “curtail a broad range of work by independent organizations.”

    The New York-based group said “at least 62 groups have received warnings or orders to register as foreign agents” or have faced legal action since the inspection campaign started in March.

    Of the seven groups already taken to court, five have been ordered to pay fines and register and another 15 organizations may face administrative charges if they fail to register, HRW said in the statement.

    Although the Russian government maintains that the law is designed to prevent foreign interference in the nation’s political life, NGOs involved in activities that do not seem expressly political, such as public health and wildlife conservation, have already been held to account under it.
