Passenger Vessel Safety Under Russian Microscope

July 12, 2011

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev vowed a complete review of passenger ships after a deadly accident left as many as 129 people dead on an unlicensed cruise vessel, according to a Bloomberg report.
Seventy-one bodies have so far been recovered after the July 10 shipwreck on the Volga River and almost no hope remains for finding more survivors from the Bulgaria two-deck river cruise ship. 58 are still missing.
