Russia has no restrictions on activities of its citizens belonging to non-governmental organizations, including the Crimean Tatars, but it will prosecute manifestations of extremism, the Kremlin said.

“There are virtually no restrictions on non-governmental organizations of Russian citizens, [including] the Crimean Tatars,” Russian presidential spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said in reply to a question from journalists as to whether Russia is ready to heed a ruling by the UN International Court of Justice calling on Moscow to resume activities of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People, which was earlier declared an extremist organization in Russia.

“There are various manifestations of extremism and extremist organizations. And manifestations of extremism will be prosecuted in Russia, as they are elsewhere. But anything that is not forbidden is allowed,” Peskov said.
