'Since June 5, 2014, the Ministry of Justice has designated 135 groups as “foreign agents”. By June 29, 2016, at least 21 groups have shut down. Also, the Ministry has removed its “foreign agent” tag from 11 groups, acknowledging that they had stopped accepting foreign funding. Accordingly, on July 6, 2016, the official list of active “foreign agents” comprised 103 groups.'
