British marines seized a tanker in the Strait of Gibraltar

US continues policies brazen interference in the affairs of other countries around the world, while resorting to the help of their satellites.

At the request of the United States, the Gibraltar authorities captured the Grace 1 tanker, which was crossing the strait, on suspicion of transporting oil from Iran to Syria.

This was announced by the head of the Foreign Ministry of Gibraltar, Josepp Barrel.

According to media reports, the operation to detain the tanker was carried out by order of the head of the Government of Gibraltar, Fabian Picardo, and the British marines took part in it.

According to Picardo, the authorities became aware that Grace 1 was moving with a load of crude oil to the Syrian oil refinery Bayanis, which was under sanctions.

Recall that according to restrictive measures taken by the European Union and the United States, it is forbidden to supply oil products and oil to the Syrian Arab Republic, as well as to purchase oil from it.

There is a list of vessels created by the US Treasury that the US administration suspects is a violation of sanctions. Among the listed, in the list are vessels that sail under the flag of Russia.

Currently, the tanker is located in the port of Gibraltar, where the verification of supporting documents is being carried out and the route of the cargo ship is being specified.

    A direct violation of the notorious international law by which the UK waves like a bogeyman in each case. Classified as piracy. Sanctions against Syria are illegal. Capture the ship all the more. If Iran sends the ambassador of the small-sized British, he will be right. Further to their right. British ships may be detained as an adequate response.

      Drasti has arrived!
      Syria has been dreaming of removing Assad for 5-7 years.
      The NATO people want to help the Syrians, but they don’t think so - can they be afraid of the inadequate reaction of the monkey with a nuclear grenade? request
      As a result, we get a picture of oil:
      Syrians will climb to blow up the entrances of the Russian Federation.
      Iranians, Turks, the US neigh with Putin's Russian Federation.

        Aren't you tired of stinking here and pouring out bile, "kazachek" from Belarus? I never thought that there, as in Ukraine, there are a lot of such Natsik-thugs.

          Yes, these "Cossacks" have no nationality, they are united by two pathological feelings. This is a pathological hatred of Russia, no matter what political course Russia is taking. And a pathological love for cut green paper, for which they and their mother are ready to sell.

    What ordinary people call piracy for you "norms of international law" is a common occupation for small Britain.
