Moscow repeatedly called on the Netherlands in the past 18 months to stop the unlawful actions of  Greenpeace's 'Arctic Sunrise' reports Arctic Info (Russia) citing  the Deputy Head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia, Aleksey Meshkov.

The diplomat was commenting on the proceedings initiated by the Netherlands against Russia at the International Tribunal for the law of the sea of the United Nations International Tribunal on the Law of the Sea regarding the case against crew members of the Arctic Sunrise.

According to 'Arctic info', assessments of other interested parties is ambiguous. A few days ago, the President of Finland noted that while he does not consider the accusation of piracy for the offenders to be right, in his view, they were aware that they were violating Russian law.

In turn, the Deputy Chairman of the Parliamentary Commission for Foreign Affairs of Denmark, Søren Espersen, was of the opinion that everything that has happened with the Arctic Sunrise is pure provocation. He believes that Russia’s actions were logical and justified.
