- Russians have financed the anti-fracking movement in the U.S., Continental Resources (NYSE:CLR) Chairman and CEO Harold Hamm alleged today at The Forbes Reinvent America Summit.
- ”Russia has spent a great deal of money over here to cause a panic in the United States over fracking to stop it, because suddenly their market share is going away,” Hamm said.
- The comments amplify an allegation made last year by NATO chief Anders Fogh Rasmussen, who charged that Russians were funding anti-fracking movements in Europe and in countries of the former Soviet Union.
