AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Russia must pay the Netherlands about 5.5 million euros ($6.40 million/£4.9 million) in damages for seizing the Dutch-flagged Greenpeace vessel Arctic Sunrise in 2013, an international arbitration panel ruled on Tuesday.
The five-member panel, based in Vienna, decided in 2015 that Russia was liable under the U.N. Convention on the Law of the Sea and has now put a price on damages to the ship, as well as the wrongful arrest and suffering of 30 people aboard.
Russia declined to take part in the proceedings.
