Anthony Perrett, the 32-year-old activist and who was among the so-called Arctic 30, is set to go home after spending two months in prison. His group was charged over alleged hooliganism. However, the charges were dropped following an earlier amnesty. Mr Perrett, who is the first of the protesters to be granted visa, is set to return to Wales. Meanwhile, reports confirmed that another Greenpeace activist, Dmitri Litvinov, was the first to leave Russia after boarding a train to Finland on Thursday.
Mr Perrett, said: "I'll be leaving for home in Wales as soon as possible now, extremely proud of what I did three months ago. We took peaceful action to defend a part of the world that is the heartbeat of our climate.
"The Arctic is a measure of our planet's health and I refuse to stay silent as the oil companies line up to profit from its destruction.
"Together we are saying to the oil companies that the Arctic is off-limits and that we must save this beautiful region for future generations."
