"Law enforcement found five foreign workers without permit to stay in the closed town of Polyarny on Russia’s Kola Peninsula."
"The five, all referred to as illegal immigrants, were working on decommissioning the Northern Fleet’s large landing ship Mitrofan Moskalenko. The ship caught fire on December 8, and investigation now points the finger of blame at the five foreigners. Their work may be the cause of the fire, reports regional news online Severpost.
RUSSIAN WARSHIP WHILE DOCKED, BEING DECOMMISSIONED, ON FIRE. A RESULT OF "HOT WORK" AS THAT TERMED DEEMED.
Illegal immigrants [part of the work crew] responsible? Polyarny a "closed" Russian city. Only essential workers/personnel with proper papers allowed to work/live in Polyarny.
The Americans do it, the Russians do it too.
