Confronting Russian Seismic Vessel in Barents Sea

Greenpeace confronts the Rosneft-contracted Akademic Lazarev seismic vessel in the Barents Sea north of Russia. The organisation is protesting against the Russian oil giant Rosneft as it prepares to drill for oil in the fragile Arctic. The ship began firing underwater sound cannons up to 250 decibels in the Fedynskiy license block, Greenpeace approached the vessel, demanding that it stop operations immediately. Rosneft has recently signed joint deals to drill in the Arctic with international oil companies including ExxonMobil, BP and Statoil.
