Shots Fired in the Arctic, Greenpeace Activists Held by Russian Security
“Imagine you’re that activist. For a moment, in the middle of the chaos of protesting in the frigid Arctic ocean, you lock eyes with a Russian Coast Guard officer. He is there to stop your peaceful protest, and help ensure the company’s operation goes ahead.”
That’s how Greenpeace saw it today when they boarded the Prirazlomnaya, the Russian arctic production platform located 60 kilometers offshore in the Pechora Sea. 11 warning shots were fired by Russian security services at the Greenpeace vessel Arctic Sunrise. The activists are now being held by the Russian security service.
Am I the only one really frustrated by this constant BS?
Russian "security", Putin and his ruski lapdogs throwing sh*t at the rest of the world and none yet thought of returning the favor back?
I mean how the f*ck do you drill in international waters, imprison protesters on a ship in the arctic and actively ignore and deny the consequences of drilling there?
all this while not giving rat's ass about anyone else?
That's a shmuck country, if you're dictating and holding down the US, trying to stop 'aggression', then you better f*cking hold yourself aswell instead of immediately, aggressively imprisoning Greenpeace protestors on the fricking arctic.
Their frightening escalation of force just highlights their usual behaviour, while countries are being extra cautious on even less than this and have to choose their next actions carefully, the Russian "security", government, etc, always does whatever the f*ck they want and none's there to criticize.
Now, dear GTA V diplomats, please tell me why it's so hard for Obama to put Putin in his place for once? I honestly don't get it.
