Russia has legislation that identifies groups and individuals as foreign agents. This is a characterization that contains hints of espionage of the Soviet period, in the event that there are people involved in this activity, which the authorities consider to be a political activity.

Dozens of critics of the Kremlin have been listed as foreign agents, including journalists and human rights activists, and many have fled abroad.
