The border guards had to chase the ship as its captain had tried to lead it away to Norway’s economic zone, Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said.
“Vilnius has intentionally ignored an important fact that the captain of the Lithuanian ship made an attempt to steer it to Norway’s economic zone, while holding a group of Russian border guard service inspectors onboard,” the ministry said. The Russian border guards, acting in compliance with Russian and international law, had to pursue the ship, Lukashevich said.
On September 18, during an inspection by the Russian border guards, the Lithuanian ship Juros Vilkas (Sea Wolf) was found to have violated fishing rules in Russia’s exclusive economic zone and illegally procured about 15,000 tonnes of crab.
