NARYAN-MAR, April 22 (RIA Novosti)
An incident that has led to oil spill has occurred on April 20 at Russia’s Arctic Trebs oil field, the regional Emergencies Ministry said on Sunday.
“An accident occurred at the oilfield at 5.30 pm Moscow time on Friday, oil began rushing,” a ministry spokesman said. Rescuers arrived on Saturday, and the rush of oil was terminated on Sunday.
“There was no fire, none was injured,” he added.
In late December, Russia's largest crude oil producer LUKoil and mid-sized oil firm Bashneft closed deals on a joint venture and partnership to develop the giant Trebs and Titov oilfields in the Russian Arctic.

Some people are trying to make the reality in Russia at least a bit more humane. The amnesty should apply not only to persons involved in high-profile cases, but also to individuals who are not as well-known. It is better to set free at least some of the individuals who deserve to be released than no one at all.
