Russia Suspends British Nonprofit Organization

In a growing diplomatic dispute, Russia today "suspended" a British nonprofit organization, claiming violations of Russian law pertaining to the nonprofit organizations.  The Russian government asserts that the largely British government funded nonprofit organization has failed to properly register and pay taxes due.  The organization, comprised mostly of English teachers, disputes that claim.  For more on Russian nonprofit law, see Economic Constraints, Political Motives: Contemporary Russian Nonprofit Tax Law .
