Wednesday January 11, 2017

A Kiribati-flagged cargo ship, the Rich Mighty, has spilled approximately 60 litres of bunkers from its deck at Vladivostok, local media reports.

Response teams are said to have cleaned a 1200 m2 area, collecting 600 kg of oil covered ice in the process.

The Rich Mighty is noted to have been intended to sail to Japan from the Russian port.
