The Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation recognized the activities of Greenpeace in the country as “undesirable”.
The statement of the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office states that Greenpeace finances the activities of Russian “foreign agent” organizations, and since the beginning of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, it has been engaged in “anti-Russian propaganda.”
Also, according to the department, “Greenpeace’s activities are actually accompanied by active promotion of a political position, attempts to interfere in the internal affairs of the state and are aimed at undermining its economic foundations.”
The branch of Greenpeace in Russia announced its closure after the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation deemed its activities “undesirable”.
“We categorically disagree with the decision of the Prosecutor General’s Office. This decision makes it illegal to continue any Greenpeace activity in Russia. Therefore, the Russian branch of Greenpeace is forced to close. We are sure that the announcement of Greenpeace International as an undesirable organization is caused by precisely what we tried to prevent from happening through our work destructive plans for nature and in many cases did it successfully. The liquidation of Greenpeace in Russia is an absurd, irresponsible and destructive step that has nothing to do with the protection of the country’s interests,” the statement reads. statement organizations
