Tim Deere-Jones: Disabled Russian nuclear-powered freighter to pass through UK and European waters. The disabled Russian nuclear-powered freighter SEVMORPUT (built in 1988) is expected to pass through UK waters between the 19th and 23rd of December, en route for Leningrad after aborting a proposed trip to re-supply the Russian base in the Antarctic. The SEVMORPUT’s voyage to the Antarctic was cut short off the coast of West Africa when campaigners observing her passage via satellite feeds reported that she must be experiencing difficulties because that she had spent several weeks going round and round in circles off the coast of Angola. Later reports implied that her captain and the Russian authorities had asked for Safe Haven in Angola, South Africa and Namibia, but had been refused entry.
