Four Ukrainian sailors from the fishing vessel “Ivan Golubets”, which sunk off near the coast of Mauritania on July 22, have returned home. State Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Andriy Zaiats announced this on Twitter.
"Good morning news: four Ukrainian sailors from the vessel “Ivan Golubets”, to which restrictive measures had been applied, have returned home from Mauritania tonight," Zaiats wrote.
As we reported earlier, during a storm in the Celtic Sea, the 57-year-old Ukrainian sailor sustained injuries incompatible with life. The charitable organization Assol Sailors Assistance Fund informed about it, as well as the FleetMon resource, which tracks the location of ships.
"The ALMA bulk carrier (IMO: 9231676, the flag of Malta) contacted MRCC Corsen, France, and requested medical attention for a 57-year-old Ukrainian sailor who was in critical condition. An injury was received as a result of a storm at 10.10 pm UTC on November 22 in the Celtic Sea, approximately 150 nm west of Brest," the report said.
The medical team, which was delivered aboard the ship, confirmed the death of a sailor.
