The environmental publication Kedr, recognized as a “foreign agent,” was closed after threats to the publication’s heroes

A stub appeared on the website of the independent environmental publication Kedr.Media, according to which “the project is closed.” The editor-in-chief of the project, Ivan Zhilin, in a conversation with Mediazona, confirmed that the publication has stopped working since the beginning of 2024.

“"Kedr" has been closed since the beginning of the year due to the fact that people who gave us comments began to receive threats from foreign agencies, including from the notorious “Anna Korobkova.” We cannot substitute speakers,” the journalist commented on the situation.

Zhilin noted that part of the project team has already created a new publication dedicated to environmental issues. It's called “Resin”. Materials on the Smola website began to appear in the spring of last year.

Anna Korobkova, who was mentioned by the editor-in-chief of Kedr.Media, has repeatedly written denunciations against people who publicly criticized the war in Ukraine. The woman claimed that “exposure is in her blood,” since her grandfather was an NKVD informant during the Great Patriotic War.

The Ministry of Justice added Kedr.Media to the register of “foreign agents” in November last year. According to the department, the publication distributed materials from “foreign agents” and published “inaccurate information” about the policies of the Russian authorities in the field of ecology and environmental activities.
