Russian cargo ship with 11 crew missing

A Russian cargo ship with a crew of 11 lost radio contact on Tuesday in the White Sea in bad weather, prompting the launch of a rescue operation, the Interfax news agency reported. The ship, the Kapitan Kuznetsov, was travelling from the port of varandei in the far north of Russia to Arkhangelsk with 11 people aboard but no cargo, a source in the Arkhangelsk region maritime authorities told Interfax.

‘The ship did not give any SOS signal,’ the source said.  A tugboat set off to find the ship on Tuesday morning, the regional emergency ministry said in a statement on its website, while a plane and helicopter with rescuers were waiting for suitable weather to take off.  The ship, which was registered in Saint Petersburg and belonged to the North Western River Shipping Company, last had radio contact at 2:00 am (1000 GMT Monday) when it was entering the White Sea, the emergency ministry said.  The weather in the White Sea was bad with waves of up to 3.5 metres (12 feet), the emergency ministry said.
