Russian Ship Luybov Orlova sold

CBC News today reported that the Luybov Orlova which has been in St. john's for approx a year and a half has been sold to a Norwegian company and the new owner wants the ship in europe as quickly as possible.

From reports on the CBC no one will be sorry to see it gone, as the ship has no heat, no generators operating, only the port authority checking on the ship. The ship could be gone by the end of Feb, depending on how quickly the deal closes

The ship has accrued more then $200,000 in berthing fees since it was arrested, and the CBC Newfoundland reported the vessel has been sold for $275,000.
