For many years, Naturvernforbundet has worked closely with Russian environmental organizations. The cooperation has been of great value on a number of environmental issues, such as preservation of biodiversity in the Barents region, phase out of old nuclear plants and promotion of low carbon development.
The work has at all times faced challenges due to regulations on Russian side, but the situation deteriorated significantly with the new NGO laws that were approved in the Russian Parliament and by the President in 2012. Since 2015 the time and resources spent at meeting and answering to the pressure from Russian authorities has increased in our partner organizations.
After the full-scale invasion in Ukraine in 2022, things have gotten even more difficult.
Naturvernforbundet has regularly produced reports and short papers on the effects of the NGO laws, in particular on the Foreign Agent law and how it affects environmental organizations.
