Coordinating Council of Civic Forum EU – Russia (a coalition of non-governmental organizations in Russia and the European Union) issued a statement in which it demanded to stop the police action and the prosecution of Environmental Watch activists on North Caucasus due to the upcoming Winter Olympics in Sochi.

Civic Forum EU – Russia demanded an end to the persecution of environmental activists in Kuban«Taking into account the fact that in the past year, Environmental Watch activists on North Caucasus have being systematically persecuted by the Russian authorities, the Coordinating Council of Civic Forum, the EU – Russia expresses a serious concern about the situation in the region on the eve of the Winter Olympics in Sochi», - said in a statement the Coordinating Council of Civic Forum EU – Russia.

The document lists the facts of pressure on activists from EcoWatch that have taken place recently. In particular, there is the fact of illegal wiretapping by the FSB of the organization coordinator Andrew Rudomakha. It also says about uncaused detention in Tuapse in the end of October of the member of EcoWatch Michael Plotinikov together with two German citizens. It is indicated of unproven charges of the EcoWatch councillor Evgeniy Vitishko who was arrested in the beginning of November at the police checkpoint in the area of Dzhubga in «violation of the probation». The document describes the incident with the Deputy coordinator of Environmental Watch Dmitry Shevchenko, who was detained by the FSB and police and searched in the Krasnodar airport on the night of 8 to 9 November.

Civic Forum EU – Russia demanded an end to the persecution of environmental activists in Kuban«The recent events in the Krasnodar region leave no doubt that the prosecution of environmental activists is systematic and linked to the upcoming Olympic Games in Sochi. Federal and state governments in the region say they are taking extraordinary security measures in order to ensure the smooth running of the Olympics. However, in reality, these measures do not turn against potential terrorists, but against environmental and human rights activists who are trying to raise awareness of the widespread violations of environmental law and human rights in preparation for the Olympics», - said in a statement.

Coordinating Council of Civic Forum EU – Russia demanded from Russian authorities to stop the persecution of environmental activists on trumped-up reasons, and called for international non-governmental organizations, the public and the media «to strengthen the monitoring of human rights and the preservation of environmental values in the Krasnodar region in the run-up to and during the conduct of Olympic Winter Games in Sochi».

In addition, a coalition of Russian and European NCDs (National commissariat of defense) called on the International Olympic Committee (IOC) «to draw attention to human rights violations on the part of the Russian state in preparation for the Olympic Games in Sochi and t demand from the Russian authorities at all levels of compliance as a condition of carrying out the Games at high standard».
