Russian authorities yesterday declared the organisation run by opposition leader Alexei Navalny a foreign agent, the justice ministry said on its website. Navalnys Anti-Corruption Foundation, which often publishes investigations into state officials, will now be subject to increased oversight and will have to present itself as a foreign agent on official documents. Russia started a controversial list of foreign agent organisations, which in Russian implies spying for a foreign government, in 2012. This has led to many of the groups closing down.
