REUTERS/Evgenia NovozheninaPresident Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday he wanted Russia’s total net greenhouse gas emissions to be less than the European Union’s over the next 30 years, a goal he described as tough but achievable. Russia is the world's fourth largest greenhouse gas emitter. Putin is set to deliver a speech at an online climate change summit hosted by U.S. President Joe Biden on Thursday. "Over the next 30 years, accumulated net greenhouse gas emissions in Russia must be lower than in the European Union," Putin told top officials and lawmakers at his annual state-of-the-nation speech. Russia's greenhouse gas emissions are around half of the total of the 27 EU countries, which combined have more than three times the population.

MOSCOW—Supporters of jailed opposition politician Alexei Navalny have called for mass protests to demand his release amid growing fears over the activist’s health. Mr. Navalny’s team had earlier said it would call for demonstrations after gathering half a million signatures of people willing to take to the streets. But on Sunday, it reversed course following reports that the activist, who has been on hunger strike for almost three weeks , was in critical condition. “Events are moving too fast and too bad,” his team said in a statement. The protests, called for April 21 in the central squares of Russian cities, would fall on the same day that President Vladimir Putin is scheduled to deliver his annual address to the Federal Assembly, Russia’s national legislature.
