Sanctioned Russian vessel leaves South Korea after finding fuel provider

Previous reports indicated South Korean fuel suppliers were wary of U.S. sanctions

A U.S.-sanctioned Russian vessel which was last week reported as being stranded in South Korea has since made its way back to Vladivostok, the NK Pro ship tracker shows.
