On Monday, the Russian Supreme Court postponed the consideration of the issue concerning the elimination of the Moscow branch of the Kuwaiti organisation "Social Reforms Society", which is recognised as a terrorist organisation in Russia. The court session was postponed until April 22nd due to the absence from the court of the organisation leader.
The application to eliminate the Moscow branch of the organisation was forwarded to the Russian Federation Supreme Court by the Russian General Prosecutor's Office. The General Prosecutor's Office has earlier declared 15 organisations operating in Russia as terrorist organisations, including "Social Reforms Society". The Russian Federation Supreme Court confirmed the given definition.
Russian law-enforcement bodies became interested in the activities of the "Social Reforms Society" Moscow branch in 2002. Back then, for the violation of Russian legislation, the activities of the organisation were suspended for 3 months.
Russian President Vladimir Putin and German Chancellor Angela Merkel had had a few fights and used strong language because of the Ukrainian crisis in 2014
