Russia bans "undesirable" NGO's

Don Melvin reports on CNN that Vladimir Putin has signed into a law allowing the Russian government (eg. Putin) to declare any foreign NGO “undesirable” and make it a crime for any Russian to work for one, story link here
It’s pretty obvious that the law will silence political opposition (such as over Ukraine) but could also be used against LGBT groups.
It’s pretty apparent that the law would be selectively enforced.
