VGP – State President Truong Tan Sang on April 2 telegraphed a condolences message to Russian President Vladimir Putin over the sinking of a trawler in the Okhotsk Sea, Kamchatka on the early morning of April 2.

At least 43 crew of a Russian trawler died and more than two dozen were missing after the vessel sank in freezing waters off the Kamchatka Peninsula in the Western Pacific Ocean late on April 1, Russia’s Emergency Ministry said.

Sixty-three of the 132 people on board the Dalniy Vostok were rescued with the sea’s temperature near zero degrees Celsius (32 degrees Fahrenheit), the ministry said.

The ship was carrying 78 Russian nationals, as well as 54 foreign nationals from Myanmar, Ukraine, Lithuania and Vanuatu.
