– research vessel “Akademik Ioffe”, detained by local authorities in early November. The ship was allowed to leave the territory of the country, writes RBC, citing a source in the Ministry of Education.
The department added that now the Danish authorities are awaiting a document confirming the decision to lift the arrest. In addition, the Ministry of Education and Science is already expecting the return of the ship to Russia.
