ST. PETERSBURG, November 22. /ITAR-TASS/. Two more Greenpeace activists — Swedish and US citizen Dmitry Litvinov and Russian citizen Roman Dolgov - have been granted bail by St. Petersburg’s Kalininsky district court, a Greenpeace representative told Itar-Tass on Friday.
They will be released when bail is paid.
Seventeen activists have already left Russian prisons.Thirty protesters, including four Russians, were detained on September 18 when trying to climb the Prirazlomnaya rig from aboard the Arctic Sunrise. Their ship was towed to the port of Murmansk in northern Russia. In October, the Russian Investigative Committee dropped piracy charges against the group, replacing alleged piracy with an accusation of hooliganism.
