Medvedev Praises Adjustments in Laws on Nonprofit Organizations

Dmitri Medvedev at DavosMOSCOW. Feb 2 (Interfax) - Laws on nonprofit organizations have been improved seriously over the past few years, President Dmitry Medvedev told the Council for Civil Society Institutions and Human Rights on Tuesday.

"We have jointly done a great deal of work over the past years to adjust laws on nonprofit organizations. Much credit for this must be given to the Council. Some problems were raised quite openly and sharply, before me at least. As a result laws have been improved. They cannot be ideal. But adjustments have been made," Medvedev was quoted as saying on the Kremlin website.

The procedure of registering nonprofit organizations has been relaxed, the amount of documents required for official control has been reduced, the number of checks has been reduced, too, and the period allotted to process the registration applications has been shortened, he said.

"Other problems you raised were tackled, too This does not mean they have been solved ideally. Anyway, I hope you will not say that no reaction followed," the president said.
