The Anna Akhmatova proceeded with boarding anyway, winching the Greenpeace boat into the air and throwing the activists into the freezing arctic waters. This is part of a series of actions held to prevent Gazprom from completing the work that will allow them to begin drilling in this fragile region. 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.Locations:Arctic-Pechora Sea-RussiaDate:28 Aug, 2012Credit:© Denis Sinyakov / GreenpeaceMaximum size:5616px X 3744pxKeywords:Confrontation-Danger-Gazprom-Greenpeace activists-Greenpeace inflatables-KWCI (GPI)-Occupation actions-Oceans (campaign title)-Offshore drilling-Oil (fossil fuel)-Oil (Industry)-Oil drilling-Oil rigs-Outdoors-Prirazlomnaya oil platform-Save the Arctic (campaign title)Shoot:'Save the Arctic' Barents Sea TourThe campaign to save the Arctic continues in Russia and in the Barents Sea.
