Last night the fishing trawler Gibartai ran ashore at Avachi Bay, near the Pacific coasts, and was forced to give an emergency signal. The Vladivostok Coordinating Centre for Rescue at Sea reported that all the 19 crew members had survived. The accident took place near Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky and a rescue tugboat immediately came to the fishermen's rescue. Now the tugboat is towing the trawler to deep water.
Near the United Nations Glass Palace in New York, there is a metallic sculpture entitled "Evil Defeated by Good", representing Saint George transfixing a dragon with his lance. It was donated by the USSR in 1990 to celebrate the INF Treaty concluded with the USA in 1987
