ST PETERSBURG, November 25./ITAR-TASS/. British cameraman Phillip Ball is the last Greenpeace activist granted bail following his September arrest for storming the Russian Arctic oil rig who has been released from St. Petersburg’s prison on Monday.
All activists, except for Colin Russell of Australia, who might remain in custody until February 24, 2014, were freed on bail of two million rubles for each.
Those activists who had left prisons last week were able to walk the streets of St. Petersburg, the press service of the environmental campaign group said, adding that nobody restricted their movement.
“They did not sit in their hotels,” Greenpeace press service said. “Most Russians from the Arctic Sunrise returned to Moscow.”
Thirty protesters, including four Russians, were detained on September 18 when trying to climb the Prirazlomnaya rig from aboard the Arctic Sunrise. Their ship flying the flag of the Netherlands 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.
