Saint Petersburg: Five British Greenpeace activists and one Canadian flew out of Russia on Friday following an amnesty which halted their prosecution for a protest against an oil rig, the environmental group said.

The activists took off on a plane from Saint Petersburg's Pulkovo airport, a Greenpeace spokesman told AFP, declining to reveal their final destination.

Seven of 30 activists charged in the probe have now left Russia after Dmitri Litvinov, a Swedish-American, left Saint Petersburg for Helsinki on Thursday.
