INTERTANKO supports the Russian Maritime Pilots’ Association

Further to our previous articles in the Weekly NEWS, the Maritime Pilots of Novorossiysk/RMPA have lodged a complaint with the Ministry of Antimonopoly Politics and Entrepreneur Support, Krasnodar Regional Administration, for being banned from providing pilotage in the port by the Maritime Administration of the Port of Novorossiysk and the Harbour Master of Novorossiysk.

Based on the latest approach mentioned above, RMPA has received written support from the Commission of the Krasnodar Regional Administration of the Ministry of Antimonopoly Politics (MAP) of Russia, the Department of the Russian Transport Inspection, Mr. A. A. Voronin, and the Administration of the Krasnodar Region, Mr. Tkachov.

A complete overview of the escalating problems for pilots organised within the Russian Maritime Pilots’ Association (RMPA), including a free translation of the above support, can be viewed by clicking here

Although the above letters clearly imply that the ban of the Maritime Pilots of Novorossiysk by the port authorities in Novorossiysk is indeed illegal, proper action to rectify this by the authorities has yet to be taken.
