Video: Three Russians Jailed In Greenpeace Protest Freed On Bail

By Clip Syndicate
Three of the 30 people arrested during a Greenpeace protest walked free on bail on Thursday, defiant that the action against Arctic oil drilling was justified and that the response by the authorities was not.Denis Sinyakov, 36, a freelance photographer, caught his wife in a bear hug and Ekaterina Zaspa, 37, the doctor on the Arctic Sunrise icebreaker, was greeted by her husband. "I am not guilty, and there is no crime in people organizing peaceful protests," Sinyakov told reporters outside the court in Russia's second city of St Petersburg.Andrey Allakhverdov, 50, a spokesman for Greenpeace Russia, said he had "absolutely no regrets" over taking part in the protest when activists tried to scale the Prirazlomnaya oil platform operated by state-owned Gazprom in the Pechora Sea.
