Russian lawmakers have advanced a bill letting federal prosecutors extrajudicially ban websites associated with organizations deemed “undesirable,” a label currently applied to a handful of American NGOs linked to the likes of former President Ronald Reagan and liberal donor George Soros, among others.

Three lawmakers abstained from voting but no one opposed the measure, the Meduza news site reported.
