  1. Russian paranoia on display, “This is a political matter. Greenpeace is part of the world government; they want to undermine our oil industry” (http://www.ng.ru/politics/2013-10-03/1_greenpeace.html).” quoted here, http://www.jamestown.org/single/?no_cache=1&tx_ttnews%5Btt_news%5D=41443&tx_ttnews%5BbackPid%5D=7&cHash=50eb56256b28e514f34c4d7e8fbe83d8#.UlBvsYVTAnV
