"This is taking up a huge amount of our time. Even in the usual way of things we are inspected much more rigorously than commercial organizations, and now they have decided to literally turn everything upside down. Who has cast doubt on the fact that our work is useful for society, and why? And why should we have to justify ourselves? We are not being treated fairly. We are doing something useful and they hang round our necks the slogan ‘foreign agent’ " - Galina Arapova, director of the Media Rights Centre, Voronezh
