Georgia has detained another Russian dry cargo ship, citing navigation violations in a restricted Black Sea zone
Georgia has detained another Russian dry cargo ship, citing navigation violations in a restricted Black Sea zone, Georgia's border guards said Monday. In the second incident of its kind in the past few days, the Georgian border guards said the ship, with a crew of 13, was carrying plywood from Gemlik in Turkey to Georgia's Poti, on the Black Sea. The border guards detained the ship Sunday in a restricted area near Sarpi, on the Georgian-Turkish border. The ship "Astrakhan" is now anchored at the Batumi port in the same area. Under Georgian law, violations of navigation rules entail a fine of about $30,000. In the event of non-payment, ships are confiscated or sold at auction. Last week, Georgian border guards detained another Russian dry cargo ship near Poti, saying it was polluting the environment. It was fined $35,000.
