Russian authorities to close out Environmental Watch on North Caucasus

Russian government is on its way to illegally shut down Environmental Watch on North Caucasus for their environmental activism. This NGO constantly reveals environmental violations often connected to political figures, e.g. Putin. EWNC is also fighting for compliance with the law in preparation to Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics.

EWNC received a ‘second’ notification to provide authorities with documentation on a foreign agent status. After this notification government will have a right to file a law suit to liquidate the NGO. This procedure is illegal as EWNC did not receive the first notification.
