The Russian Emergencies Ministry said in a statement that it has recovered three bodies from the icy waters of the La Perouse Strait, which lies between the Sea of Okhotsk and the Sea of Japan.

The accident took place in the same waters in which a Russian floating oil rig capsized and sank last Sunday killing seventeen people. Thirty-six people are still missing, feared dead.

Officials said five of the Cambodia-flagged ship’s crew were Russian, and the other three Indonesian. Two of the dead have been identified as Russian nationals, and one remains unidentified.
