Hizb ut-Tahrir is an international Islamic political organization that calls for the unification of all Muslim countries into a caliphate, but rejects terrorist methods of struggle. Russia recognized the organization as terrorist in 2003, the activities of Hizb ut-Tahrir in the country are prohibited. Under Ukrainian law, Hizb ut-Tahrir is a legal organization. In Western Europe and North America, it is also not prohibited, with the exception of administrative restrictions on its activities in Germany.
