Six Russian cargo vessels and at least one oil tanker sanctioned by the US for their history of transporting weapons for Moscow or oil from Iran docked in India over the past month, according to a report by Foreign Policy, which cited Jack Margolin, a programme director with the Center for Advanced Defense Studies, a non-profit group that tracks sanctions compliance and illicit networks.
