The Russian law on foreign agents needs to be improved,  Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Monday.

“Of course, this law needs improvement, it is necessary to ensure that it is aimed at the solution of the task for which it was created, namely, to exclude all interference in our domestic political life from outside directly or through third parties, by financing their activities within the country.” Putin said, speaking at a meeting with the leadership of the chambers of the Federal Assembly.
