The Hudson Maritime Shipping Company did not pay 19 members of the Patriot vessel detained in China for salaries for November-December 2019 and for January 2020. The total amount of debt exceeded 1,6 million rubles.

Now the ship and crew are in the seaport of Ningde. According to the Far Eastern Transport Prosecutor's Office, the shipowner did not take measures to return the sailors to their homeland, and also did not insure their lives. The company does not give a salary and does not provide the crew with other payments, including repatriation.

The transport prosecutor made a submission to the head of the shipping company to eliminate the violations, sent a lawsuit to the court to recover wage arrears from the Hudson company, compensation for its late payment and repatriation. The lawsuit is being considered by the Frunze District Court of Vladivostok. In addition, cases of violation of labor laws were brought against the company.

The ship came for repair in China, but its owner does not have money to pay for the work. The company hopes to receive subsidies from the government, since the ship is located under US sanctions, and the company is experiencing financial difficulties.
