MOSCOW, Dec 19 (Reuters) - Russia will take tough steps to guard against any attempts by environmental groups like Greenpeace to interfere in its development of the Arctic, President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday.

Putin said Greenpeace activists arrested for a protest at a drilling platform in September may have been carrying out instructions to undermine Russia's efforts to develop Arctic energy resources, suggesting governments could have been behind it but naming no nation.
