Earlier, the Russian Prosecutor General's Office filed a motion to disband the international public organization Memorial Society (a non-profit organization declared a foreign agent in Russia) and its subdivisions for violating the 'Foreign Agent' law. Founded in 1989, Memorial is an international historical society researching the political repressions and monitoring human rights in the present-day Russia and other post-Soviet states. The Memorial Society was declared a foreign agent in 2016. Credit: Gavriil Grigorov/TASS.
