Russian sailors go abroad

18.07.2008 Of the students studying in Russian maritime colleges, more than 90 percent go abroad to work. Now Russian authorities intend to make the sailors work for Russian companies.

During a recent meeting in the Marine Board, First Deputy Prime Minister Sergey Ivanov expressed major concern with the declining number of Russian sailors working in Russia.

- Today 70 percent of all students [in maritime colleges] which is 45,000 people study with state grants, of which no more than nine percent remain in Russia for work, Mr. Ivanov said, Regnum reports.

The first deputy PM now proposes to introduce a system with compensation fees for the students going abroad to work after graduating.

In the future, foreign shipping companies hiring a young Russian sailor, might either have to compensate the Russian state or pay for the persons studies.
