Of 9 crew (Syrians and Indians) 8 were rescued, 1 went missing, SAR under way, 3 crew were picked up from a life boat, 5 from a life raft. Vessel understood to be caught in storm, she left Kerch port, notwithstanding gale warning. AIS doesn’t record Kerch call, because by calling Crimean port, vessel violated sanctions imposed on Crimean shipping.
