Striking dockers at Vladivostok Commercial Sea Port (VMTP) were in anything but conciliatory mood when a management delegation showed up on October 5.
As seen in this dramatic footage, Arkady Korostelev, president of the FESCO shipping group, and Roman Kukharuk, a director with VMTP, were showered with hard hats by the dockers. Korostelev is also seen getting kicked and set upon by workers.
VMTP workers went on strike on October 1, local reports said, following Kukharuk’s appointment to replace Zairbek Yusupov as the general director of VMTP. Yusupov was dismissed at a shareholders’ meeting on September 30, VL.RU said. Credit: VL.ru – Новости Владивостока via Storyful
