AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - An arbitration court in the Netherlands has ruled against Russia in the seizure of the Greenpeace ship Arctic Sunrise and ordered it to pay unspecified compensation in the case.

In a ruling published late on Monday, the tribunal ordered Russia to pay compensation for material damage to the Arctic Sunrise, which was held for months in 2013 after Russian authorities seized it during a protest against an offshore oil platform.
