ST. PETERSBURG, Russia - The two Canadian activists held in Russia after an Arctic protest in September have been released from custody.
Paul Ruzycki of Port Colborne, Ont., and Alexandre Paul of Montreal were among those from the Greenpeace ship Arctic Sunrise released Friday.
Nicole Paul, Alexandre Paul's mother, said she wanted to hold her son in her arms as soon as possible.
Patti Stirling, Ruzycki's sister, called word of her brother's release the best news her family has had in a long time and said it means part of a nightmare is over.
