The issue with the Russian ship «Sevastopol», which was held in Busan, closed, said, who has arrived in Seoul, the Chairman of the Federation Council Valentina Matvienko.

«As for the ship, fortunately, this issue was resolved, the South Korean authorities decided to release our ship. All this time we were in contact, and thus, the topic is closed. It will not affect the visit, because the decision was made to start our visit,» — said Matvienko reporters on the issue of «Sevastopol».

In August, the South Korean foreign Ministry reported that the Russian ship «Sevastopol» in the South Korean port of Busan is checked for violation of decisions of the UN security Council. Last week, the shipowner, the company «Hudson» has received notification from the South Korean side that the ship is prohibited out of the port.

USA made the list of sanctions on North Korea two Russian companies and six vessels, including a shipping company «Hudson» owned by her and the ship «Sevastopol». The U.S. Treasury alleges that they participated in deliveries to the DPRK of refined petroleum products, which allegedly siphoned from Russian to North Korean vessels at sea.
