A Briton has been charged with piracy by Russian investigators after taking part in a protest against Arctic oil drilling.
A total of 30 Greenpeace campaigners were detained last week as their ship circled near the Prazlomnaya oil platform in the Pechora Sea, after some activists attempted to get on to the platform.
And Mikhail Kreindlin, a representative of Greenpeace, said: "The first two activists have been charged with piracy. These activists are from Brazil and Britain."
Those found guilty of piracy can be sent to prison for up to 15 years.
