Russia supplied oil to North Korea bypassing sanctions - media

  • Russia supplied oil to North Korea bypassing sanctions - media

Kyiv: A Russian tanker, bypassing the sanctions, supplied oil to North Korea.

About this reports Reuters, citing the crew of the Tantal vessel.

From October 2017 until May 2018, the tanker met at least four times in neutral waters with North Korean vessels and transferred fuel.

The sensors, which can determine the position of the tanker, were not working at that time.

They were turned on after the Tantal returned to the territorial waters of Russia.

As noted, such agreements violate international restrictions that were imposed on North Korea through the development of nuclear weapons.

In turn, the Russian ambassador in Pyongyang called this information a rumor.

We recall that the MPs of the Estonian Riigikogu approved the initiative, according to which the parliament will appeal to the government with a proposal to introduce personal sanctions against Russian officials.
