Andrey Yakunin, 47, was detained by Norwegian police earlier in October for flying a drone in Norwegian airspace. He is now in custody in Tromsø while the investigation continues.
“I have done my best to help the police investigation, and I’m hoping this situation will be solved fast,” Andrey Yakunin said via his lawyer.
The Barents Observer has insight into Yakunin’s diary notes from the Svalbard sailing and can here show some of the photos taken by himself and his team, including images from the drone that caused the arrest now making worldwide news headlines.
