The Yarovaya law refers to a set of laws passed in 2016 in the Russian Duma which is named after one of its authors Irina Yarovaya. The law's primary functions are to update counter-terrorism laws and public safety.

However, the law has also found a place in the persecution of Christians throughout Russia, including a ban on evangelism and different types of missionary work.[1][2]

Some Christian leaders called the law "some of the most restrictive laws in post-Soviet history".[3] The law has led to limitations on internet expression afforded to others.[4][5]
