It seems increasingly doubtful that the industrial nations will keep their paw off of arctic oil. This extreme action by Russia puts the spotlight on them. Next week, it could easily be Norway or the UK or the US, etc., etc.

Would not except my phone no so could not do it
The people who are doing this drilling in the Arctic are selfish
They wont be around to see all the devastation from climate change so they dont care Its the people like Greenpeace that care about the world in the future They should be allowed to protest

I understood Greenpeace was sailing in a protection zone near a Russian oil rig. I think clarification is needed.

This is true. Further clarification is needed, and the activists need to be released.

This story leaves out important details: ,the activist tried to board the platform. Acts against a state are punishable by that state same as the pirates are tried by the nation whose ship they attack. The Russians could just have them shot. Supporting illegal actions is not the way to handle these disputes. One day these activists will tangle with one of the less than impressed nations and find a quick trip to prison or execution.
