YUZHNO-SAKHALINSK, November 30. /TASS/. Some 3,500 meters of coastal territory in the Russian Far East have been contaminated by oil spill from the grounded Russian tanker, the press service of the regional emergencies ministry said on Monday.
The Nadezhda oil tanker ran aground near the port city of Nevelsk on Sakhalin Island in Russia's Far East on Saturday. The vessel, with eight people onboard, carrying 786 tons of fuel oil was some 150 meters off the shore.
"The contamination of the coastline by oil products has been found on the territory of 3,500 meters," the ministry said in a statement.
Rescuers have disposed around 105 cubic meters of contaminated sand. The effort to deal with the consequences of the incident is expected to take at least two weeks.
