The Russian Consulate General in Odessa has sent a note to the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry asking it to clarify the situation around the Nika Spirit tanker detained in Ukraine, but has received no reply so far.

“[Ukraine] has not notified [Russia of the arrest] yet. The Consulate General in Odessa has sent a note to the [Ukrainian] Foreign Ministry with a request to clarify the situation. No response has been received to date”, spokesman for the Russian Embassy in Kiev Denis Golenko said Tuesday, adding that the embassy had not received any notice of the ship’s arrest either.
