12 sailors return to Odessa from an arrested Mekong Spirit vessel, which was further detained on suspicion of smuggling weapons.
“The topic of Ukrainian sailors in Greece is sensitive and difficult. But the solution is predictable. Today from Athens to Odessa 12 sailors return from Mekong Spirit, who were on board for 14 months,” said Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin.
A mandatory condition for returning sailors to their homeland is the monthly registration at the Greek Consulate General in Odessa.
The minister added that the consuls are working for the early return of all Ukrainian sailors home.
Recall that the Mekong Spirit container carrier was detained by Greek law enforcers on suspicion of smuggling weapons. The ship is in the port of Lavriou, 60 km from Athens.
