VLADIVOSTOK, October 9. /TASS/. The Ukrainian crew of the Greek-owned Go Skar ship flying the Liberian flag who went on strike at the Nakhodka seaport in Russia’s Far East over wage arrears has asked the court to arrest the vessel. The ship owner promised to repay the debt by Friday evening, Nikolay Sukhanov, the leader of the Far Eastern seamen trade union organization, told TASS.
"The papers for arresting the Go Skar vessel at Nakhodka have been handed over to the judge this morning," Sukhanov said. "The ship owner promised to pay the arrears today until 5 p.m. local time and after that to register the vessel’s departure and sail off until the court’s ruling. The sailors continue to be on strike in the harbor of the Nakhodka port. The wage arrears stand at $41,885," Sukhanov said.
After the crew went on strike on October 1 demanding repayment of $150,000 in delayed wages, the ship owner, Greece’s Marina Spirit SA, partially repaid the debt.
Ukraine’s consulate general in Novosibirsk is keeping an eye on the situation.
