    Default Russia 'seizes' Greenpeace ship after Arctic rig protest

    Russia 'seizes' Greenpeace ship after Arctic rig protest



    Greenpeace says 29 activists, including six Britons, are being held at gunpoint by Russian security officers who stormed the group's ship in the Arctic.

    One of the activists told the BBC that about 15 men in balaclavas seized the Arctic Sunrise ship in the Barents Sea.

    This comes a day after four Greenpeace members tried to board a Russian oil platform to prevent it from drilling.

    The group says this threatens a unique and fragile environment - a claim denied by Moscow.

    Speaking to the BBC on Thursday, one activist on the ship said Greenpeace members were being held in the galley of the Arctic Sunrise, while the captain was being detained on the bridge.

    The activist said he believed the armed men were members of Russia's internal security service, the FSB.

    Greenpeace also said its vessel was boarded in international waters and called on Russian President Vladimir Putin to release the crew immediately.

    The Russian foreign ministry earlier accused the group of "aggressive and provocative" behaviour.

    It said the actions of the activists who had tried to board Gazprom's Prirazlomnaya drilling rig on Wednesday "threatened people's lives and could lead to environmental catastrophe in the Arctic with unpredictable consequences".

    Moscow also said that its coastguard vessel had to fire warning shots across the Dutch-flagged Arctic Sunrise.



    The Dutch ambassador to Moscow was later summoned to the foreign ministry over Greenpeace's action.

    The Gazprom project is Russia's first effort to extract oil from the Barents Sea.

    Prirazlomnaya is scheduled to begin production by the end of the year. Russia's economy and its recent growth depends to a large extent on income from its huge oil and gas deposits.

    Fuck I never agree with much of anything about Russia but good for them. I'm surprised these guys haven't been killed yet. They're totally agressive annoying and deserve to be shot at.

    Green peace is a joke and Russia don't find them funny. This is how they should be treated elsewhere
