PYONGYANG, May 15. /TASS/. The Russian Elfin yacht has left the North Korean port of Kimchaek and set a course for Vladivostok, Russia's Ambassador in North Korea Alexander Matsegora told TASS on Sunday.
The yacht’s master and the crew members have established contact, Matsegora said, adding though that the Russian diplomats are still requesting from the Korean side to explain the reasons for detaining the yacht.
The Elfin yacht with five crew members onboard was detained by a North Korean coast guard ship in the Sea of Japan some 80 miles away from the port of Kosong on Friday. The vessel, belonging to the Primorye Sailing Association, was on the way from the South Korean port of Pusan to Vladivostok after an international regatta.
