To return from the UAE of the ship's crew from Nakhodka, Primorye authorities

The administration of the Primorsky Territory is taking steps to return the sailors of the tanker Carolina Wind, blocked in the port of Sharjah of the United Arab Emirates, to its homeland, the administration’s press service reported on Thursday. With the request of this, the spouse of one of the crew members addressed the acting head of the region, Andrei Tarasenko.

It is reported that the acting governor instructed the regional department of international cooperation to assist the shipowner Nakhodka-Portbunker in solving the problem with the delivery of seafarers to their homeland. Andrei Tarasenko contacted the Consul General of the Russian Federation in Dubai and the Northern Emirates Gocha Buachidze, after which the diplomatic mission took a number of measures to assist the crew. “Currently, the ship has everything you need. According to the latest data, which we confirmed in a conversation with crew members, food and water were brought to the tanker, salary arrears were partially repaid. According to the consulate general, the staff’s salary was paid for September, ”the message says the press secretary of the acting governor Olesya Yasevich.

From her words, the question of replacing the crew remains urgent. According to the General Consulate, only the shipowner's agent in Sharjah can change the crew, but local companies are not yet willing to act as such a partner, since the vessel is arrested. "The Primorie Administration entered into negotiations with the bank that imposed the penalty. Andrei Tarasenko took personal control of the situation when the sailors returned home, "the report said. It is also reported that the administration of Primorsky Krai permanently maintains contact with members of the families of seamen, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Vladivostok and the shipowner company. An official letter was sent to Vladislav Nuriev, the bankruptcy manager of Nakhodka-Portbunker LLC, demanding that the measures be taken immediately to return the crew members to their homeland as soon as possible.

Carolina Wind was arrested in the port of Sharjah because of the debts of the shipowner Nahodka-Portbunker LLC in bankruptcy proceedings to Gazprombank. Now there are six people on the tanker - the sailors, deprived of the right to leave the ship, have become hostages of the current situation.

Earlier, the Russian Seamen’s Union (RPSM) reported that relatives of the crew members of the Russian motor ship Carolina Wind, abandoned by the shipowner Nakhodka Portbunker in the Emirates, are asking for help in returning seamen to Primorye. Many crew members have already completed individual contracts, but there is no replacement. On the ship there is no connection with the shore, there is no supply. There are also Crystal Nord and Crystal East vessels of the same shipowner, their crews also asked for help, finding themselves without salary and the opportunity to return to their homeland. Verification in connection with the violation of the rights of the crew members of ships arrested in the port of Sharjah, is carried out by the Nakhodka transport prosecutor's office.
