Russian Youth Fights for Climate in Siberia

Teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg has been named Person of the Year by Time magazine — and her influence has crossed over Russia’s borders.

Russians have staged climate rallies as part of Thunberg’s Fridays For Future movement in cities across the country, including in Siberia, where the thermometer can easily fall below minus 20 degrees Celsius.

We spoke with Siberia’s eco-activists about their choices, their concerns and the challenges they face.

… 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.
