NEW DELHI, October 12. /TASS/. The last four crew members of Russia’s Vsevolod Beletsky vessel, arrested for debts in India, have departed for home, Russian Consul General in Kolkata Alexei Idamkin told TASS.
“The consulate general arranged the sailors’ flight home in a manual mode,” he said. “The last four crew members took a flight to Russia early this morning,” Idamkin added.
