Around seven metric tons of diesel fuel spilled into a river
Around seven metric tons of diesel fuel spilled into a river in northern Russia when a dry cargo ship and a tanker collided in the Vologda region, an emergencies ministry said on Friday.

"The collision occurred at around 23:00 Moscow time [19:00 GMT, Thursday] on the Malaya Severnaya Dvina River near a ship repair plant in the town of Veliky Ustyug. The barge sprang a leak and about seven tons of diesel fuel spilled into the river," a ministry spokesman said.

He said the spill has been contained and is now being cleaned up.

A special commission is working at the site to establish the cause of the incident and determine the resources and funds required for the cleanup operation.
