Times of Oman | News :: Putin says he may review 'foreign agents' law

Moscow: Russian President Vladimir Putin said Friday he may recommend changes to a much-criticised law branding some non-governmental organisations as "foreign agents" for their links to the West.

Putin told civic leaders attending the Civil Summit of the G20 group of major economies in Moscow that he had heard complaints about the new law.

"I agree with our colleagues ... about the need to analyse the practise of how (the law) is applied," Putin said in televised remarks.

"We should think about improving this legislation so that it does not bother anyone," he said.
