MOSCOW, November 14, 12:58 /ITAR-TASS/. The Kremlin did not see the letter from famous rock musician Paul McCartney, who asked Russian President Vladimir Putin to set free the arrested Greenpeace activists, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told LifeNews on Thursday.
“We heard that he had written it, but we did not see it yet,” Peskov said. In his words, no standard procedure is envisaged for such cases. The decision on whether a return message will be sent can be taken only after reading the original letter.
“We have not received anything,” the Russian presidential press secretary said. “We cannot conduct dialogue with the media,” he said.
On September 18, the ship Arctic Sunrise sailed to the offshore oil drilling rig Prirazlomnaya. The Greenpeace activists tried to board the drilling rig. The border guards curbed their actions, after that the ship was towed to the port of Murmansk. All detainees were arrested for two months.
