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.

Russia media is under attack.

At least 10 independent media outlets have been blocked or closed down over their coverage of the war in Ukraine.

The Moscow Times needs your help more than ever as we cover this devastating invasion and its sweeping impacts on Russian society.
