The General Prosecutor’s Office considers Greenpeace an undesirable organization
The General Prosecutor’s Office considered the actions of Greenpeace International undesirable. The ministry believes that “this poses a threat to the foundations of the constitutional order and security” of Russia.
The Prosecutor General’s Office also accuses Greenpeace of trying to change the government in Russia. “The activities of the fund are aimed at destabilizing the socio-political situation and attempting to change the power in the country in an unconstitutional way,” the ministry said.
Since the beginning of the war in Ukraine, Greenpeace activists “conducted anti-Russian propaganda, calling for further economic isolation of our country and tightening of sanctions,” the Prosecutor General’s Office believes. The department also accused the organization of not coordinating public activities with the authorities by its employees, shape negative public opinion and hinder the implementation of “infrastructure and energy projects that are beneficial to the country.”
“With regard to the Russian Federation, Greenpeace’s environmental activities are in fact accompanied by active promotion of a political position, attempts to interfere in the internal affairs of the state and aimed at undermining its economic foundations,” the prosecutor’s office claims.
In addition, the fund, according to the ministry, finances foreign agents and also “requires changes in Russian legislation to the detriment of the interests of citizens of the Russian Federation.
Greenpeace deals with environmental issues in Russia. In particular, the organization helps in the fight against forest fires: it develops the volunteer movement, conducts training for employees of national parks and reserves, and proposes the necessary changes in the law. For example, Greenpeace has called for conservation reform in nature areas to fight fires more effectively.
