Russia has begun to crackdown on US-based organizations apparently causing trouble in the land of Putin.
Last week Monday, Russia banned the Open Society Foundations, a charity founded by George Soros from operating in the country.
This Friday, Russian prosecutors banned another US-funded foundation as an "undesirable" organisation, the fourth entity to be banned because of political meddling in the country.
The US-Russia Foundation for Economic Advancement and the Rule of Law, which states it promotes private sector development and institution building in Russia, will be banned as its activities "present a threat to the foundations of Russia's constitutional system and state security," Russia's prosecutor general said in a statement.
Apart from declaring the foundation "undesirable" the prosecutor also banned its president, US citizen Mark Pomar, from entering Russia until 2025.
