10,000 People Protest Controversial Landfill in Northern Russia

As many as 10,000 people protested against plans to build the Shiyes landfill in northern Russia Sunday.

The anti-landfill movement passed the one-year mark last week as the public continues to cite health and environmental concerns regarding the estimated 10 million tons of trash to be brought in to the landfill over the next 20 years.

Independent polling has said that an overwhelming majority of respondents in the Arkhangelsk region opposes the controversial landfill’s construction.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
