In Russia, a women’s organization campaigning for the return of conscripted men in Ukraine and former presidential candidate Ekaterina Dauntsova have been classified as “foreign agents”. A label derived from the Soviet era intended to mask criticism of Kremlin policy.

Russia on Friday characterized as “foreign agents” a women’s organization campaigning for the return of men mobilized in Ukraine in the war started by Vladimir Putin, as well as a former presidential candidate calling for an end to the conflict. Moscow uses this label to mask and silence critics of the Kremlin, with heavy, highly rigid administrative controls that have Soviet-era connotations.

The Justice Ministry on Friday added to the register of “foreign agents” the “Put Tomoi” (way back) movement, which organized small gatherings of women demanding the return of men from the front. The ministry argued that the movement worked to create a “Negative Image” Russia and the Russian military, and called for illegal protests.

Ekaterina Tauntsova, a former local official who tried to run for president last March, also added to the list, and Putin won unsurprisingly, ending the attack on his program in Ukraine. His file was denied.
