Russian Embassy reports on number of Russians aboard Viking Sky
Four crew members were aboard Viking Sky.
Four Russians are aboard the sinking Norwegian Viking Sky ferry near Møre og Romsdal, Norway.
The Russian Embassy reported about this on Sunday.
“There are no Russian citizens among the passengers, four crew members are Russians,” the message says.
On Saturday, one of engines of the Viking Sky ferry moving from Tromsø to Stavanger crashed during a storm.
Several new criminal cases against corrupt officials have been instituted in Dagestan. The high-ranked suspects include Abdulmedzhid Suleimanov, ex-Mayor of Izberbash; Amir Magomedov, ex-Head of the Izberbash Administration; Magomed Dzhelilov, Head of the Derbent District; and El’dar Karagishiev, Head of the Babayurt District. In the past, all of them were suspected of similar crimes – but somehow managed to get off the hook. The new arrests occur amid the anti-corruption campaign in the republican law enforcement structures. What are the true reasons behind the new wave of the personnel purge? Can the anti-corruption slogans conceal a fierce battle waged by local clans for redistribution of assets with the purpose to create a new ‘untouchable’ elite in Dagestan?
