Russia plans to introduce new powers to prosecute foreigners whose activities are seen as "undesirable" on national security grounds.
Russian MPs have backed a bill to ban "undesirable" foreign non-governmental organisations (NGOs) or firms.
The draft leaves the definition of "undesirable" open to interpretation.
Under an existing 2012 law, foreign-funded Russian NGOs linked to politics must register as "foreign agents". The label has connotations of spying.

This law could easily be used to target Russian business, all they have to do is create some fake proof and threaten the owners. Toe the line or lose your business.
