Ella Pamfilova: Rumors about Russian civil society decease are overestimated


According to Ella Pamfilova, the Coordinator of the Civil G8 Projects Working Group and the Chair of The Civil Society Institutions and Human Rights Council under the President of the Russian Federation, Russian NGOs have many problems but the rumors about their decease are overestimated. Ella Pamfilova said that within the First Plenary Session of the Civil G8. The REGNUM Agency informed earlier that the Civil G8 Project is an international civil Forum aimed at the preparatory actions for the G8 summit in St Petersburg in July.
Ella Pamfilova has also stressed a very active participation of Russian regional NG)s at the Forum and expressed hope that it would allow to integrate successfully into the international cooperation. Our main aim is not to direct the discussion into the course favorable for the authorities, but to clarify the positions that our civil society is interested in, - she added.
We are ready to cooperate with everybody, - stressed Ella Pamfilova. She said that anti-globalists were also invited to participate.
The Forum will last for 2 days.
