November 23 2007

Responsibility for the high pollution ecology of the Kerch Strait should be held companies shipowners. This was stated by Minister of Emergency Situations of Russia Sergei Shoigu.

"I believe that the underlying claims must be notified to the carriers. Firstly, because it is worldwide accepted as the norm to exploit double-hulled vessels. And there were tankers of the" river-sea ", calculated on the wave height is not more than two meters, and was five meters. The same applies to sunken freighters with a gray "- said Shoigu.

"In the sunken freighter - about 6,700 tons of sulfur. Yesterday, the divers reported that one of the vehicles rolled over and lay on the bottom of the keel up, so it will be difficult to see what was inside. First, the procedure will be developed by its revolution and the penetration" - the words quoted Shoigu " Interfax ".

"With regard to pollution - clean practically everything. Today and tomorrow will remove already collected and packaged around 3 tons of oil-containing goods. At present, about 5 thousand dead and injured birds collected and disposed of", - concluded Shoigu.
