Action On The Anna Akhmatova

A team of Greenpeace activists including the Executive Director of Greenpeace International Kumi Naidoo attach themselves to the anchor chain of the Anna Akhmatova and chain their inflatable to it, preventing the ship from lifting anchor and sailing to the Prirazlomnaya oil platform to complete the work that will allow them to begin drilling in this fragile region. This follows an earlier action when a team of 6 Greenpeace activists including Kumi Naidoo spent 15 hours on board Gazprom's giant Arctic oil platform off the North-eastern coast of Russia in the Pechora Sea. Gazprom looks set to begin full commercial drilling operations by early next year, becoming the first ever company to start commercial oil production in the offshore Arctic.
