Border guards detained the Aquarius-1 craft flying the flag of Belize in the North Kuriles area (Russia's Far East).
Commander of the North-Eastern regional border-guard directorate of the Russian Federation's Federal Security Service Lieutenant-General Valery Putov told journalists on Monday that the ship had been detained for crossing Russia's state border near the Matua island of the Kuriles chain.
During a few hours on Sunday, the border guards tried to detain the Aquarius-1, which was trying to escape from a patrol ship. The vessel was stopped, and an inspecting group landed on board it only after the border guard aviation aircraft, which flew into the region of detention, gave a fire warning.
The vessel has no permission to enter Russia's territorial waters.
The ship is being convoyed to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky port for further investigation. The vessel can be confiscated from the company that owns it for violating the Russian Federation's state border.
In 2003 the Aquarius-1 was detained twice for violating the rules of catching marine bio-resources in the Russian Federation's exclusive economic zone.
The co-author of this disaster is the Dutch government, which did not find either strength or desire to save the lives of its citizens who were flying on that plane. The Dutch authorities did not demand Ukraine to comply with international aviation regulations
