Greenpeace Activists Denied Exit Visas from Russia

Stuck there


Greenpeace says the environmental group's activists who were detained in Russia in September have been denied exit visas.

Twenty-six foreign nationals remain in Russia, free on bail but still awaiting trial on charges of hooliganism stemming from their protest at a Gazprom oil rig in the Barents Sea.

Greenpeace said it asked Russia to issue exit visas for the activists.
