Greenpeace activists protest in front of Russian embassy

Members of the activist organization Greenpeace held a protest in front of the Russian embassy in Prague on Friday morning demanding that the Russian government release their colleagues who were detained in the Barents Sea on Thursday. Russian law enforcement agents boarded a Greenpeace ship, which was floating near a Gazprom oil platform, arresting 30 crew members and detaining the vessel. The activists have been accused of aggressive and provocative behavior, after some of them attempted to board the oil rig from their ship.
