PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, September 2 (Itar-Tass) — The Swedish small yacht Anna has been detained in the Chukchi Sea for violation of the Russian border regime. A decision has been made to expel her out of Russian waters, the press centre of the Northeast Coast Guard department of the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) told Itar-Tass on Friday.
It specified that on August 28 the yacht whose homeport is Varberg was spotted in the RF territorial sea by the Neva border patrol ship. There are two persons on board the yacht - a Swedish man and a Polish woman. The yacht has no permission to enter Russian waters. The crew explained that this situation occurred because of the vessel’s breakage and difficult weather conditions.
The yacht was escorted to the port of Providence and on September 1 handed over for an investigation over the violation to the RF FSB department for the Chukotka Autonomous Area.
It has been already the second violation of the RF state border regime by the Anna yacht within a month. On August 15 the vessel called at Pevek port for replenishment without going through the necessary customs and border procedures. The crew was fined 4,000 roubles for an administrative offence, and the yacht was expelled from the Russian territorial sea.
At present, after troubleshooting, the violator vessel has left the port of Providence and escorted by the Neva border guard ship has set the course outside the Russian territory.
