The Russian Duma has just passed amendments to the Russian NGO law.

Russian NGOs receiving foreign funding will now have to register at the Ministry of Justice as an "NGO carrying out functions as a foreign agent", make public their sources of funding by marking it on the materials they distribute, and report semi-annually to the Ministry of Justice on their activities.
