ST PETERSBURG, Russia, Nov 18 (Reuters) – A Russian court granted bail on Monday to one of 30 people who are being held in pre-trial detention over a Sept. 18 Greenpeace protest against offshore oil drilling in the Arctic.

The court ruled that Yekaterina Zaspa, a Russian who served as a medic on the Greenpeace ship used in the protest but was not among activists who tried to scale Russia's first offshore oil rig, can be released on 2 million roubles ($61,300) bail.

A separate court in St Petersburg denied bail to another arrestee in the case, Colin Russell, granting a request from prosecutors to hold him in custody until Feb. 24.

($1 = 32.6232 Russian roubles)
