The first mate of a maintenance ship based in Georgia right away refused to refuel a Russian vessel in an act of solidarity with Ukraine. Viral footage has captured the first mate speaking into his vessel’s microphone on receiving a request for refuelling.
He asked, “Are you from Russia?” and the person from the requesting vessel replied, “Yes, from Russia. Russian Crew Member.” The Georgian first mate then says that they refuse to refuel the ship and finished off with profane language.
