RUSSIA ENVIRONMENTALLY: AN INTERACTIVE MAP
Environment & Rights—Ekologiya i Pravo—was founded in 2002 at the St. Petersburg, Russia, branch of the internationally renowned environmental organization Bellona based in Oslo, Norway. Aimed at highlighting both environmental problems in Russia and the many barriers set by the state to exercising a citizen's right to receive and spread environmentally significant information, the magazine’s seeds were sewn by the human rights crisis of the conviction of Grigory Pasko, a well-known journalist and whistle-blower, who was sentenced in 2001 to four years hard labour for an “intention” to hand sensitive information to Japanese media. But the case of Pasko–now the magazine’s editor-in-chief–has been just one outrageous example of human rights violations by Russia’s Federal Security Service, or FSB, in a series of recent “spymania” attacks on Russian scientists, journalists and environmentalists. A flip side to these abuses is the deteriorating environment in a country, where the interests of the new capitalism and the state’s giant nuclear industry outbid those of the public and the population’s health. The magazine, which is published with grant funding and is distributed freely, is intended for specialists in ecology, ecological activists and all who wish to be in touch with the environment they live in and want to know how to realize their right to make it better.
