The regional center for seamen protection in New York has been engaged into the settlement of the situation around the arrest of Delphin with 204 Ukrainians on board in Venice.

A representative of the center has already talked to the captain of the vessel on phone and offered their assistance in settling the issue, Ukrainian Foreign Ministry’s spokesman Oleksandr Dikusarov told Interfax-Ukraine.

As reported, on October 12 the Delphin Voyager cruise ship, sailing from Venice to Istanbul, entered the port of Piraeus in Greece. The Ukrainian Embassy in Greece reported that the operator company had been declared bankrupt and was refusing to fulfill its financial liabilities to the ship’s crew, which included Ukrainian citizens.

The owner of the ship is Greek Enterprises Shipping and Trading SA, and the operator was German Marine Trade Consulting Gmbh.
