Russian vessel and crew members, including ROK nationals, return

July 28, 2019

 o The Russian vessel ‘Xiang Hai Lin 8’ carrying two ROK nationals, departed the North Korean Wonsan Port on July 27 at around 7 P.M., and entered the South’s Sokcho Port on July 28 at around 1:12 P.M. North Korean authorities cracked down on the vessel as it drifted in the East Sea on July 17.

 o All crew members, consisting of 15 Russians and two ROK nationals, are on board. They are safely returning to the South 11 days after the North’s crackdown.

 o The ROKG positively evaluates from a humanitarian perspective that the North has safely returned the vessel and crew including our nationals.
