Is this a Civic movement? Is it registered officially as a political movement? Does it have any officials elected?

This is a flag of a kind of resistance movement. I haven't find more information about this organization (if it is that at all), but there is a white flag with a black disc wearing a white hand, and there is a Russian inscription under it: "сопротивление" means "resistance". You can see this flag in better conditions in this video (at 4:04)
