NEW DELHI, June 19 (Itar-Tass) - Eleven Russian seafarers were rescued from the MOL Comfort container ship that wrecked in the Arabian Sea, the Sri Lankan authorities said on Wednesday.
They will be delivered to Colombo on Friday. After this a decision on restoring seafarers’ documents and their return to Russia will be taken.
