The MacArthur Foundation regrets about the possible introduction in " Patriotic stop list "
Alexey Bogdanovsky. Social organization the MacArthur Foundation regrets about the possible inclusion of "Patriotic stop-list" and nourishes the hope of a conclusion of the Russian authorities about the activities of the organization conform to Russian legislation, said the Fund Manager Julia stash.

The Federation Council has sent to the Prosecutor General, Ministry of foreign Affairs and the Ministry of justice "Patriotic stop-list" of 12 foreign NGOs, which included, in addition to the Soros Foundation and the MacArthur Foundation, the world Congress of Ukrainians, the Ukrainian world coordinating Council, the Crimean field mission on human rights. Similarly, in the stop list are the national endowment for democracy, international Republican Institute, national democratic Institute for international issues, freedom house, Foundation Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, the Foundation " Education for democracy ", East European democratic centre.

"With great regret the news about what the Council of Federation of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation recommended that the Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation to include the MacArthur Foundation to the list of organizations engaged in "undesirable activities" in the territory of the Russian Federation. We believe that such estimate is based on an incorrect understanding of the activities of the MacArthur Foundation in the Russian Federation ", - reported in circulation stash.

in her expressions, the Fund believes that publication of the Federation Council of the Russian Federation "stop list" is not a final legal assessment of the activities of the Fund in the form of " junk ", " because such a determination is within the competence of the Prosecutor General and the Ministry of foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation ".

"We Also believe that the chief Prosecutor's office will review shown to her by the Federation Council list. We hope to conclude about the fact that our activities always comply with the Russian legislation ", - said the head of the Fund.

She said that Since 1991, the MacArthur Foundation has supported in the Russian Federation charitable and civic organizations, activity of which is aimed at " improving the living conditions of the citizens of Russia, the development of higher education in the Russian Federation and the prevention of proliferation of nuclear weapons ".

She recalled that the Metropolitan branch of the Foundation was opened in 1992.

"in his state consist only citizens of Russia, patriots of their country. The MacArthur Foundation is completely independent of the state of the U.S. government and is not funded by the U.S. government. We do not engage in political activity and do not support any kind of political activity ", - said the head of the MacArthur Foundation.

Also, in her expressions, the Foundation helped to strengthen the independent universities in Russia, which allowed the development of civic proposals and gave an opportunity for scientists to do research on topics of interest.

"in the human rights field, our grantees helped to vulnerable members of the Russian society to defend their rights and promote public discussion of important social issues," concluded the stash.
