Ukrainian sailor

Ukrainian sailor - A Ukrainian sailor who tried to sink a Russian's yacht in Majorca in Spain after news that war had broken out has declared: 'I'd do it again'. The 55-year-old mechanic said he attempted to sink the vessel because he claims, “the yachts owner is a head of a Russian state arms firms. The luxury yacht, named Lady Anastasia, was moored at Port Adriano by Alexander Mikheev. The sailor, who had worked on the yacht for several years, decided to sink the ship shortly after Russia's invasion began. After his arrest he admitted responsibility but was freed by a judge. It is still not clear if he has been charged with an offence.
