The first of the 30 Greenpeace activists arrested after a protest over Arctic oil drilling has left Russia, the environmental group has said.
Soviet-born Swedish activist Dima Litvinov crossed the Finnish border after receiving an exit stamp in his passport.
13 others have also received the stamp which allows them to leave, Greenpeace said. The rest of the 'Arctic 30' are expected to go through the process on Friday.
On Wednesday, Russia dropped all charges for each of the 30 protesters.
"Now I'm going home to my bed, my wife, my kids and my life," Mr Litvinov said in a statement.
"I'm leaving Russia feeling like we won something here."
Russia releases all six of the Britons detained during a Greenpeace protest against oil drilling, days after dropping piracy charges.
Five of the six British people held in Russia over a Greenpeace protest against oil drilling in the Arctic are heading back to the UK.
