KALININGRAD. Oct 6 (Interfax) - Cargo was delivered to the port of Kaliningrad via the Northern Sea Route for the first time, Governor Anton Alikhanov said in his telegram channel.
The governor's press secretary Dmitry Lyskov told Interfax that the Newnew Polar Bear container ship under the flag of China had arrived at the port. The ship belongs to the Hainan Yangpu New New Shipping Company, which began to develop a transport network with Russia along the Northern Sea Route. The capacity of the container ship is 1,600 TEU.
Balticconnector hat vermutlich ein Leck:
Und du erhälst:
Chinese vessel even nearer to Balticconnector pipeline at time of leak
While media reports have placed Russian oil tanker SGV Float near the Balticconnector natural gas pipeline when the latter developed a leak, data from the Marine Traffic website suggests Chinese container ship Newnew Polar Bear was a lot closer to the pipeline's location at around the same time.
Information available to Estonian daily Postimees suggests that the fact that a vessel sailing under the Hong Kong flag but belonging to China was in the vicinity of the Balticconnector pipeline at the time seismic activity was recorded in the area is why Estonian authorities have been so slow to voice concrete suspicions. The information is so politically and diplomatically sensitive that they want to make absolutely sure first.
Estonia has not approached China for comment on the diplomatic level as there is nothing to ask without official suspicions.
