The police in Krasnodar region have begun the persecution of Eugene Vitishko and Suren Ghazaryan — members of the Environmental Watch organisation of North Caucasus. The problem was the ill-fated "Tkachev´s cottage". Activists have repeatedly informed the prosecutor about the illegal seizure of land for this project, but as a result — have themselves become subject to pressure from the authorities. If the leadership of the Krasnodar region gets its way, Eugene and Suren face five years in prison.

In our opinion, Dmitry Medvedev must initiate a real investigation into the violations of environmental law in the Krasnodar region, and stop the illegal persecution of environmental activists.
