Russia Ordered to Release Greenpeace Activists, Seized Ship

Russia must release a Greenpeace ship and crew members once the Netherlands pays surety of 3.6 million euros ($4.9 million), a UN court ruled today.

The Netherlands won most of its arguments at the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea to free the Dutch-flagged ice-breaker Arctic Sunrise and its crew while an arbitration court can hear the dispute between the two nations.
