Russian Climate Activists ‘Dance’ For The Environment

On September 25th, climate activists from 154 countries participated in a global climate strike.

In Russia, large-scale protests are illegal, so activists from the eco-organizations Fridays for Future and Greenpeace performed a 'dance protest.'

Climate activists across 6 different cities and towns in Russia participated in a performance dance in an effort to raise awareness for Russia's environment.

Russia is the world's fourth-largest emitter of greenhouse gases and is currently heating up 2.5 times faster than the rest of the world.

Last month Russia also had the warmest September in recorded history, and a heatwave in Siberia this summer caused over 300 wildfires that covered an area larger than Greece and produced record CO2 emissions.

… 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.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
