Russia’s Levada pollster can appeal its listing as a foreign against through existing instruments, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Wednesday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – On Monday, the Justice Ministry announced that Russia’s Yuri Levada Analytical Center was added to the list of non-governmental organizations that receive foreign funding.

"This is one of the oldest [institutions], of course, with extensive experience and authority in the area of sociological and polling services… [Levada] can appeal such decisions in the prescribed manner. There are certainly tools needed to defend the organization’s point of view," Peskov told reporters.

Levada-Center Director Lev Gudkov told RIA Novosti on Tuesday the pollster had until Thursday, September 15, to file its appeal with the ministry. Afterward, he said the ministry could issue a protocol on the cancellation of administrative violations because Levada did not voluntarily register as a foreign agent.
