"Since June 5, 2014, the Ministry of Justice has designated 136 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 13, 2016, the official list of active 'foreign agents' comprised 104 groups."
