As many as half of Russia's 32 political parties have not managed to meet new official registration requirements. Resulting from that failure, they will have to shut down immediately.
Political parties were to re-register last year. To do that, they had to provide 50,000 members.Plus there should be branches containing at least 500 members in over half the country's regions.
