Greece seizes Russian tanker as part of EU sanctions

Greece on Tuesday seized a crude oil Russian tanker off the island of Evia as part of European Union sanctions against Russia, a Greek shipping ministry official said.

The Russian-flagged Pegas, with 19 Russian crew members on board, was seized near the coastal city of Karystos in Evia.

“It has been seized as part of EU sanctions,” a shipping ministry official said.

A coastguard official said the vessel had been seized, but not its oil cargo.
