MOSCOW, July 16 (Itar-Tass) — Russian sailors from the Tyulen 6 vessel have returned home, the Russian Foreign Ministry reported on Monday.
“Nine crew members from the Russian vessel Tyulen 6 returned to Moscow on July 14 (another two Russian sailors preferred to stay onboard). The Tyulen 6 had been anchored in Moanda port in the Democratic Republic of Congo since February this year,” the Ministry said in its statement.
“An operation to evacuate the sailors was prepared and carried out by the Russian embassy in Kinshasa after the ship owners refused to meet the financial terms of the labor contract. That put our compatriots in a situation that threatened their lives and health. The evacuation was carried out under direct control and on agreement with the Russian Foreign Ministry,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
