“The Russian government has donated €82 million to European climate protection associations that aim to prevent natural gas production in Europe ,” writes Die Welt in an article published on Thursday.
As we learn, as early as 2014, former NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen reported that Russia supported environmental organizations “in order to maintain European dependence on Russian gas.” At that time, he refuted the allegations, inter alia, Greenpeace.
“Attempts to extract natural gas on their own have often failed due to protests by climate organizations supported by money from Moscow,” Die Welt writes.
Moscow’s actions, as underlined by the German daily, were in line with the interests of “environmentalists”, which gave Russia the possibility of making Europe completely dependent on its raw materials. To this end, the Kremlin spent enormous amounts of money to support non-governmental organizations.
Importantly, in Europe, as in the USA, there are huge resources of shale gas . At a certain stage, their extraction became impossible due to the subversive activity of the so-called “Environmental organizations”, as already wrote about, inter alia, Financial Times and New York Times.
– Experts wondered about the “sudden” appearance of well-organized groups to combat the fracking process in Eastern Europe, where Russia sells its energy, writes Die Welt.
