President updated on the situation with the MV Faina

Guarded by the US Navy vessels, the MV Faina continues its movement to Mombasa seaport, Kenya, President’s Press Secretary Iryna Vannykova informed at her press briefing.

According to her update the ship has made most of the trip but due to worsening sailing conditions it is expected to arrive at Mombasa no sooner than February 12 morning.

“The sailors have the long awaited opportunity to talk to their relatives daily and that had positively effected their emotional condition”, - Iryna Vannykova said.

She also informed that the destination port has been already prepared by Ukrainian and Kenyan specialists to accept the ship.
