Ukraine court approves seizure of detained Russian tanker - Ifax

MOSCOW (Reuters) - A Ukrainian court ruled on Tuesday to formally approve the seizure of a Russian tanker that was detained by Ukrainian authorities at the Danube river port of Izmail last week, the Interfax news agency reported.

The Russian vessel was seized on Thursday for alleged involvement in the capture of three Ukrainian navy vessels last year. Its crew members were later freed.
