The Russian government formally declared an organization run by opposition leader Alexei Navalny as a "foreign agent" on Wednesday, the Justice Ministry announced on its website.
Navalny's Anti-Corruption Foundation, which regularly publishes investigations into corruption by state officials, will now be subject to increased oversight by Russian authorities and submit regular reports on who its managers are and how it spends its money.
The foundation's director Ivan Zhdanov said the group has not accepted any foreign funding and says the designation is aimed at hampering the organization's activities.
