Footage of Greenpeace being confronted by Russian force

Russian special forces move in to end the assault by Greenpeace on the Gazprom Arctic oil rig.

At first, the orange and black Greenpeace rib moves in to prevent or stall the the special forces aboard their ribs from hauling down the boarders.

That is until 1m 30s in when you sense the Greenpeace activists trying to scale the rig are made only too well aware that the guys trying to stop them aren't likely to wear artificial fur and eat lentils. #whodareswins #savethearctic

Greenpeace head of Arctic, Ben Ayliffe, debates blogger, Raheem Kassam on why peaceful protesters were in Russia to stop Gazprom from drilling in the Arctic.
