The Arctic 30 have left Russia

The criminal prosecution of the Arctic 30 has been terminated after the Russian parliament adopted an amnesty decree marking the 20th anniversary of the country’s constitution. The non-Russian nationals were granted exit visas to leave the country and all of them have finally returned home. They spent more than three months in detention, despite the fact that the seizure of their ship and the imprisonment of the activists were deemed illegal by the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea. As one activist said, "They didn't lock us up for what we did. They locked us up for what we stood for." Their act of civil disobedience was a courageous stand against destructive Arctic oil drilling and the onslaught of climate change.
