I´m lacking sound abilities where I am right now, so I see no other way than to post this as text (maybe I´ll read it to you later...
). It´s also in german, which I don´t know. So once again the translator is my friend
... It turns out the Norwegian coast guard have "arrested" Kapitän Gorbatschow and Dmitrij Pokramowitsch, two more Russian vessels. It is getting hotter up there... The article says that "The Russian ships had not registered loudly its statements its trip into Norwegian waters."...and "that Russia never had acknowledged the Norwegian territorial claims"...

Norwegen legt zwei russische Fischereischiffe an die Kette

Die norwegische Küstenwacht hat vor Spitzbergen einen russischen Fischtrawler sowie ein dazu gehörendes Versorgungsschiff gestoppt. Die Schiffe wurden zum Ankern gezwungen, wie ein Behördensprecher in Longyearbyen auf der Polarinsel sagte.

Laut seinen Angaben hatten die russischen Schiffe ihre Fahrt in norwegische Gewässer nicht angemeldet. Die Umladung von Fisch vom Trawler "Dmitrij Pokramowitsch" zum Transportschiff "Kapitän Gorbatschow" werde deshalb als illegale Fischereiaktivität betrachtet, sagte der Sprecher am Montagabend.

Norwegens Aussenminister Jonas Gahr Stre erklärte, seine Regierung betrachte massive illegale Fischereiaktivitäten durch russische Schiffe in norwegischen Polargewässern als grosses Problem. Aus Moskau hiess es dazu, dass Russland die norwegischen Territorialansprüche rund um Spitzbergen nie anerkannt habe.

On Saturday October 15th the Norwegian Coast Guard uncovered serious violations of fishery legislation after inspection of the Russian trawler Elektron. The trawler has earlier this year had its license for fishing in Norway’s economic zone suspended. Elektron resisted the Norwegian Coast Guard arrest order and fled with to Norwegian inspectors on board towards Russian waters.

The Norwegian inspectors stayed on board Elektron for more than four days. There was no indication of them being treated badly by the Russian crew.
