The Office of Russia’s Prosecutor General has announced that the country is banning Greenpeace, accusing the organization of undermining infrastructure and energy projects that are beneficial to Russia by inciting protests against them.
Russia has designated Greenpeace an “undesirable organization,” citing the eco-activist group’s record of pushing a political agenda and meddling in domestic affairs with the goal of causing economic damage.
The decision by the office of the Prosecutor General was announced on Friday. Its statement accused Greenpeace of trying to undermine infrastructure and energy projects beneficial to Russia by inciting protests against them.
The office stated that the Dutch-headquartered NGO was also involved in funding foreign agents on Russian soil and has been advocating economic isolation of the country since the conflict in Ukraine escalated in February 2022.
“The efforts of the foundation are aimed at destabilizing the social-political situation and towards an attempt to change the power in the country through unconstitutional means,” the statement declared.
