On March 23, the Ministry of Justice expanded the list of foreign agents by adding blogger Ilya Varlamov* (pictured) and lawyer Pavel Chikov*, head of the human rights organization Agora.
The reasons for including Varlamov* in the list indicate that he disseminated "unreliable information about decisions taken by public authorities and their policies, received support from foreign sources".
The list of the Ministry of Justice was supplemented by public figure Svetlana Lada-Rus* (Peunova), former Dozhd journalist* Bogdan Bakaleyko* and political scientist Ruslan Aisin*.
Also included in the list is an association of persons — "Guys Plus/Guys+"*.
