Georgia detains cargo ship with Russian crew

Georgia detains cargo ship with Russian crew
April 7 - A Georgian coast guard vessel has detained a cargo ship with a crew of 14 Russians on board, the Sovfracht maritime bulletin said on Tuesday. The V. Uspensky ship was bound for the port of Azov, on the Don River in south Russia's Rostov Region, from a Turkish port when a group of 13 armed Georgian coast guards boarded it late on Monday. The coast guards also confiscated the vessel's documentation and the sailors' passports. The cargo ship has now been taken to the Georgian port of Batumi. Preliminary reports say it was detained over navigational violations. The ship was sailing under the Cambodian flag. The V. Uspensky, with a deadweight of 5,379 metric tons, is operated by the Volgo-Don Shipping company, based in Rostov-on-Don.
