In early March, five of the detained sailors, including the ship owner was sentenced to a prison term.

In August 2018, the ship “Palladium” was detained at the exit from the South Korean port of Busan for the debts under the salary. The total amount of debt the eight crew members for five months amounted to 250 thousand rubles.
