January 28, 2012 on the Russian site www.odnako.org Dmitry Valer’yanovich Lekuh published an article under the headline "A useful best practice. What urgently needs to borrow from the United States. " In simple terms, Dmitry Valer‘yanovich concisely outlined the essence of U.S. law «The Foreign Agents Registration Act» of 1938. At least accessible form to substantiate the need for parity adoption of a similar law in the territory of the Russian Federation. In order to shorten the lawlessness of foreign NGOs in our country (it was a step number 1).
Editor in chief odnako.org — Mikhail Leontiev (very likely — it is a step number 2)
Authorities heard aspiration of the people (step number 3).
And voila — in December 2012, Russia adopted a law on foreign-agents (step number 4).
If someone can give an example of such a mechanism operating in any of the "modern democracies" — welcome.
If not — you are welcome in Russia, learn from actual working democracy.
