On September 18, the ship Arctic Sunrise sailed to the Russian offshore oil drilling rig Prirazlomnaya. The Greenpeace activists onboard the ship tried to board the drilling rig. The border guards of the Federal Security Service border department in Murmansk Region curbed their actions, after that the ship was towed to the port of Murmansk.

All 30 people onboard the ship, including four Russians, were arrested for two months and were brought to the detention centre in Murmansk Region. In early October the court of second instance turned down the appeal from the Greenpeace lawyers to change the measure of restraint to the arrestees, who were left in custody until November 24. They were charged with piracy, but later the Investigative Committee changed the accusation for that of hooliganism.

Let's take a look at most notorious actions Greenpeace has undertaken.
