Russian media report sinking of oceanic trawler with reefer capacity Kapitan Bolsunovskiy in the morning hours on May 26, 2012. The vessel got a hole and sank in the Bering sea, some 300 nm SW of Dezhnev Cape, on the boundary of the Anadyr Bay. Crew of 91 rescued by nearby vessel, no injures reported. The area where the trawler sank is free of navigational dangers, so presumably trawler collided with another vessel.
