Greenpeace Activists Start to Leave Russia after Amnesty

From Echo Moskvy:

Foreign defendants from the Arctic Sunrise incident who have been freed under amnesty are starting to leave Russia

The first to leave our country was the Swedish citizen Dmitry Litvinov. Earlier, Greenpeace’s press office told Interfax that the foreign defendants in the Arctic Sunrise case could go home by the end of the week. 14 activists have already received transit visas, the rest will receive them tomorrow.

Comments from Echo Moskvy:


Load of tripe.


And good luck to them! And on their way to the court in Strasbourg too. The Russian authorities need to be punished.

What for?

For a long, illegal arrest.

Oh yes, how could I forget? This is the Russian government, who in full force, invaded a foreign state, took prisoners (the first they came across), and then kept them for twenty years in a uranium mine. Of course they need punishing.


Congratulations to the family of Dmitry Litvinov and the families of all of the group. Happy Christmas and have a good New Year 2014.


The FSB still need to answer for piracy for taking a vessel in neutral waters. International organisations have already raised the question.

Noo, of course the FSB will answer for it! We’ll ban it from above! We’ll point out our comrades flaws! If the question has already been “raised”! […]


Flashmobbed it!


Are they going to release the vessel they stole?
