The Hudson Company and the crew of the Partizan, which cannot leave the South Korean port, did not seek help from Russian diplomats in this country. This was announced on Tuesday by the Russian consul in Busan Roman Bykov.
“The company and the crew did not contact us for assistance. We contacted the captain at the end of last week, he assured us that the situation on the ship was normal. The shipowner has not yet told us that there were again problems with the fuel, ”the diplomat said, adding that“ the sailors are tired of sitting on the ship without work ”.
Earlier it was reported that South Korean companies refuse to supply the Partizan motor ship with the Russian company Hudson, which last year was on the US Treasury sanctions list, with fuel and food. Because of this, according to representatives of the company, on board introduced austerity.
In the fall of 2018, Hudson’s ships already had problems entering the South Korean ports: ship agents refused to engage in their mooring, referring to US sanctions. At the same time, the South Korean authorities denied the existence of any restrictions for the Hudson ships.
In 2018, the US Treasury Department announced the expansion of the DPRK sanctions lists, which included the Hudson shipping company based in the Russian Federation. The list also includes six ships under the Russian flag: “Patriot”, “Neptune”, “Bella”, “Bogatyr”, “Partizan” and “Sevastopol”. According to the American authorities, they are involved in the transfer of “petroleum products to vessels flying the flag of the DPRK, as well as in activities prohibited by the UN Security Council.”
According to the company, only one of these six vessels is an oil tanker, which theoretically could provide other vessels with petroleum products. The remaining five are cargo and special vessels, one of which does not have any documents for going abroad. At the same time, the tanker was transferred to 2017 by the Maritime Maritime Logistics Company, and before that it visited the DPRK for the last time in 2016.
