Arctic 30 'free to leave' Russia

Text size Aa Aa

Greenpeace has said that all of the so-called Arctic 30 have had their amnesties processed and are free to leave Russia as soon as exit visas are issued.

The activists from the Greenpeace ship Arctic Sunrise tried to board a Russian oil rig to call attention to the threat of oil drilling in the Arctic.

They were detained by coastguards and originally accused of piracy, a charge that was later changed to hooliganism.
