Greenpeace activists can not leave Russia due to visa problems



Greenpeace foreign activists from Arctic Sunrise vessel, who were released from police custody in Russia, can not get visas and go home.

One of the Arctic Sunrise crewmembers - Anne Mie Jensen of Denmark - received an official letter from the Investigation Committee of the North-West Federal District of Russia. The letter stated that Anne could not leave Russia. The lawyers of Greenpeace activists are convinced that other foreign crewmembers may receive similar refusals.

In November, of crewmembers of the Arctic Sunrise were released on bail from prison St. Petersburg - two million rubles for each activist ($62,500).
