“On the Arctic oil and gas frontier, Greenpeace has had a run-in with the Russian state. On September 18th in the Pechora Sea activists left their ship the Arctic Sunrise in four inflatables to try and hang banners protesting against drilling by Gazprom’s Prizalomnaya rig. Had they been targetting BP or Shell in the North Sea, they would probably have been offered tea and biscuits.”
