The Ukrainian sailor had previously seen images of his hometown being attacked by Russian troops. In revenge, the Ukrainian had come up with a plan – he wanted to put his boss’s yacht on the seabed. The man confessed his intentions and is in custody.
That was the attack plan: According to Spanish reports, the Ukrainian entered the engine room of the “Lady Anastasia” and opened several valves there. The aim was to cause a water leak so that the luxury yacht would sink. Before the man left the ship, he informed the rest of the crew about his plans, reported “El Pais”.
During his interrogation, he told the police officers that the ship’s owner “is a criminal who earns his money by selling weapons that are now killing Ukrainians”.
The Guardia Civil is currently trying to identify the owner as the yacht is registered under the name of a company.
