A border patrol ship of the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) will deliver North Korean fishermen, who attacked border guards, to the Russia’s Far East, a FSB spokesperson said on Sunday.

VLADIVOSTOK (Sputnik) – The Russian border patrol ship stopped the North Korean fishing boat to conduct a search on Friday evening but faced an aggressive resistance of the members of the crew. The Korean vessel, carrying 48 crew members, started to move out of the Russian territorial waters, while the fishermen attempted to attack the patrol officers.

"Today the ship will arrive in the Primorsky Territory, where an investigation will be carried out. On board of the ship there is a doctor, who is delivering medical care [to injured fishermen]," the spokesperson told RIA Novosti.
