VLADIVOSTOK, December 24 (Itar-Tass) — The Lazurit tugboat is on its way to the site where the disabled bulk carrier Samarga is drifting in the Sea of Japan. Early on Monday the bulk carrier went dead in the sea on its way from South Korea to Vladivostok, the Far Eastern regional department of the Russian Trade Union of Seamen told Tass.
The crew of the disabled ship includes 15 Russian nationals. Meanwhile, the Limanny ship is drifting near the bulk carrier ensuring its safety. If necessary it will take the crew on board.
The Samarga is 117 meters long and its deadweight is 7,130 tons. The tugboat is expected to arrive to the site early on December 25, as the distance from the port of Vladivostok to the site is 200 miles, Vladivostok sea port captain Alexander Kuvshinov said.
According to him, the situation on board the bulk carriers is stable, nobody was injured. Winds are up to 15 meters per second and wave height is about two meters in that part of the sea.
