A recent spate of anti-American sentiment in Russia has seen a legal NGO labeled a “foreign agent” — a term heavily implying espionage — after one of its leaders gave lectures in the U.S.

The Russian Justice Ministry deemed Sutyazhnik, a civil litigation NGO, a “foreign agent” in May on the grounds that Anton Burkov, one of its directors, spoke at events at Harvard, the University of Massachusetts in Boston, and the University of Wisconsin last year. A court in Ekaterinburg, a city in the Ural mountains in central Russia, fined Sutyazhnik and a sister organization 300,000 rubles (about $5,300) each earlier this month for failing to register as a foreign agent.

This past Friday, Russia’s lower house of parliament adopted in second reading an “undesirable organizations” bill. The third and final reading is practically a formality, and there is little doubt the bill will be soon passed into law. In recent months numerous journalists asked me, “So, this new draft law now in the works, is it about you?

To be sure, this bill is bad news for international groups like Human Rights Watch, but it’s not about us.
