Governmental support for women's civil society:
- Engagement in joint government/NGO efforts: Yes
- Funding provided by the government: Yes
The Russian Federation receives 50% because:
Even though the government is engaged in collaboration with women's civil society, inadequate financial support to women's organisations is provided, there is no special WPS-focus in the work of women's civil society, the number of projects on the Women, Peace and Security Agenda in existence is very low. As a whole, between 2012 and 2015, the number of civic groups in Russia decreased by 33 percent due to strict regulations restricting action and funding (i.e.: labeling civil society organisations as "Foreign Agents" for accepting international funding and persecuting activists). Furthermore the politics surrounding state funding for NGOs diminishes the value of financial support, as only organisations that demonstrate total obedience to the regime are funded.
