Appeal for Solidarity with Levada Center

Levada Center

Academic freedom is under attack in Russia. Authorities have now targeted the independent research institute, Levada Center. On 15 May 2013, the prosecutor’s office of Moscow’s Savelovskaya District issued a warning to the institute, citing violations of Russia’s draconian new law on non-profit organisations.

The prosecution asserted that Levada Center received “funding from abroad” and engaged in “political activity” through the publication of its research. The center thus performed the “function of a foreign agent,” the warning stated.

Please sign an appeal condemning this attempt by the Russian authorities to defame Levada Center:
