Another ship wreck in a Russian sea
The Anabar dredger

The succession of ship wrecks took place in Russian seas during the recent weeks.
      In the middle of August a fishing scow capsized off the Kekhta River estuary, in the Sea of Okhotsk. Eight people were onboard, a fisherman managed to swim to safety, four bodies were discovered in the sea two days later, and the bodies of two more sailors were found yesterday, on Wednesday. One sailor still remains unaccounted for.
      At the end of August the Alexei Kulakovsky tugboat carrying 14 crewmembers sank 20 miles off the town of Tiksi in the Sakha republic. Only three crewmembers of fourteen were saved after a tanker rushed to the sinking tugboat.
      Today rescuers have evacuated 32 crewmembers from another Russian ship that hit rocks off the south-western coast of Sakhalin Island, an emergency service official said.
      The Anabar dredger broke its moorings and was thrown on the rocks late on Tuesday near the island of Moneron, some 40 kilometers (25 miles) from Sakhalin. It has about 100 tons of oil products on board.
      "There has been no leak," the official said.
      Rescuers goes on looking for one missing sailor.
