1.  (C) Post delivered reftel points on the Revival of 
Islamic Heritage Society (RIHS) to the MFA's Department of 
International Organizations and the Department of New Threats 
and Challenges.  Vladimir Prokhorov, Senior Legal Advisor in 
the Department of New Threats and Challenges, responded that 
the GOR might support a proposal for a 1267 designation of 
the RIHS in Russia.  He suggested that no one in the GOR 
would offer more than "support in principle" without seeing 
an actual proposal.  He also expressed interest in any 
information the USG would be willing to share about the RIHS 
in Russia, particularly since the GOR's terrorist 
organization designation in mid-2006. 
 
2.  (C) Prokhorov speculated that a unilateral USG 
designation of the RIHS in Russia under E.O. 13224 would not 
be well received.  He conceded that such a move would show 
support for Russia's own action.  However, his opinion was 
that this aspect would be overshadowed if the USG "bypassed" 
the 1267 process.
