Greenpeace activists carried out an action against Russian tanker ‘Mikhail Ulyanov’ in the port of Hamburg, the famous environmental organization reports.
"Greenpeace once again is holding a protest against Arctic oil production. In the port of Hamburg activists in rubber boats and sailboats Beluga-2 came really close to the tanker ‘Mikhail Ulyanov’, which for almost a year transported raw materials from the platform ‘Prirazlomnaya’,” the Greenpeace's official statement says. The activists put on banners with slogans on the tanker.
The 257-meter tanker was reportedly in Hamburg for repairs and is now headed back to the Arctic. According to the activists, within a year the tanker will deliver 350 thousand tons of Arctic oil to the Netherlands.
It is not the first time that environmental organizations are holding protest actions against the tanker "Mikhail Ulyanov." Back in May 2014, around 80 activists tried to stop the tanker when it was in the port of Rotterdam, delivering its first batch of Arctic oil.
