    USA Seized Russian Oil Tanker
    The issue oil sanctions against Russia took a new turn, as it?s reported that U.S. Department of Justice that UAS Athorities seized an Oil Tanker loaded with Russian Oil.
    According to reports, the Tanker is in the process of transferring the oil to the United States on a chartered tanker. The vessel was detained nearly seven weeks ago in Greece when authorities thought it was covered by the European Union sanctions on Russian assets, but later held for mechanical deficiencies while watchdog groups announced that it was actually smuggling sanctioned Iranian oil.

    The Aframax tanker arrived off Greece early in April with reports of a possible mechanical failure and indications that they were looking for assistance to make repairs to continue their voyage. When she anchored south of the Greek island of Evia the 115,520 dwt tanker was being identified as the Russian-flagged Pegas. The assumption at the time was that it was laden with a Russian crude oil cargo.

    “The seizure came at the request of the Americans because the cargo came from a sanctioned country and moved on a sanctioned ship,” a Greek official told Dow Jones this morning. “The oil is being moved to another tanker which will sail to the U.S.” The American authorities have been using the courts to seize Iranian oil in violation of the sanctions imposed on the trade. The watchdog group United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI), which has been following the movements of the vessel, first announced the apparent ship-to-ship transfer on Twitter yesterday.
