Conflict on Board Russian Fishing Vessel in Montevideo

An investigation into the conflict with Chinese sailors on board a Russian fishing vessel began in Montevideo, Uruguay, on Saturday.

The conflict sprang up on April 18, while the vessel was fishing in the Argentine economic zone of the Atlantic Ocean. The Russian ship Ural has an international crew consisting of 25 Chinese, 7 Russians and 1 Spaniard. Some of the Chinese sailors went on strike and damaged the "material part of the vessel," the ship's captain Alexander Karkhunin told RIA Novosti by telephone. The Indonesian branch of the Sunhop company based in Hong Kong that controls the Russian vessel ordered the ship to return to Montevideo, which it did on Friday. Back in the port, the captain turned for help to the naval prefecture of Uruguay, which launched an investigation into the incident.

According to the captain, none of the Russian sailors took part in the riot and are alive and safe.
