A sweeping amnesty underway in Russia was extended on Tuesday to a member of the crew of the Arctic Sunrise, a Greenpeace International ship seized on the open seas three months ago. If the amnesty covers the rest of the crew, it will draw to a close one of the more contentious chapters in Greenpeace’s history, in which Russian commandos boarded a ship, imprisoned the crew members and charged them, for a time, with piracy.
