Kyiv said it has detained a Russian tanker it alleges was involved in an incident in the Kerch Strait that saw three Ukrainian vessels seized.

Ukraine’s secret service (SBU) said in a statement on Thursday the Russian tanker — formerly named the Neyma but now called Nika Spirit — alleged to have been involved in the November 2018 incident had been detained in the Ukrainian port of Izmail.

The vessel remains in Ukrainian custody but its crew have been freed and were on their way home, according to a spokesman for the Russian Embassy in Kyiv.
