Russia's Foreign Agents' Law: Outlawed But Not Silenced

We look at the crackdown on environmental activism almost a month after Russia’s oldest human rights group, Memorial, was liquidated.

Our correspondents Anastasia and Ivan Shteynert report on the impact of the so-called foreign agents' law on environmental activism in St. Petersburg and beyond.

Vitaly Servetnik, a campaigner at Russia’s Friends of the Earth and the Russian Social Ecological Union, takes us through the nuts and bolts of the legislation and explains why environmentalists are set to be the next targets of the Putin regime after human rights activists.

… 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.
