MY Arctic Sunrise Departs from Murmansk
01/08/14. Murmansk, Russia.
The Greenpeace ship Arctic Sunrise departs from Murmansk, Russia. Captain Daniel Rizzotti and other Greenpeace crew gained access to the ship on June 27th, finding that after more than nine months without maintenance, the ship must undergo considerable work to make it seaworthy for its departure from Murmansk, and its return to Amsterdam. On June 6th 2014, the lawyers acting on behalf of Greenpeace International were informed that the Russian Investigative Committee (IC) decided to annul the arrest of the Arctic Sunrise, which until then has been illegally detained in the Arctic port of Murmansk following a protest against Arctic oil drilling on September 18th 2013.
