Russian cargo ship blacklisted for violating sanctions against North Korea
U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley accused Russia on Sep 17 of “cheating” on U.N. sanctions on North Korea and said Washington has “evidence of consistent and wide-ranging Russian violations.” Haley said Washington has tracked some 148 cases this year of oil tankers delivering fuel to North Korea obtained through ship-to-ship transfers at sea in breach of a U.N. cap. She did not say how many transfers may have received Russian help. General cargo ship BOGATYR, IMO 9085730, dwt 5204, built 1996, flag Russia, owner JSC Gudzon, Vladivostok.
