The captain of the vessel Boris Prokoshev and the owner of the vessel Igor Grechushkin were on the wanted list. In addition to them, the Portuguese Jorge Moreira, who bought this saltpeter at a factory in Georgia, was on the wanted list.

The announcement of these persons on the wanted list was made at the request of the Prosecutor General's Office of Lebanon.

A so-called red notice has been issued for the Russians and the Portuguese. It has less priority than an international arrest warrant. Interpol member countries do not need to search for them, but if the authorities suddenly become aware of their location, they are obliged to report.

Upon learning of the wanted list, Prokoshev said that he was "shocked" by the wanted list. “In the end, for that matter, we were not transporting the cargo to Lebanon, but to Mozambique. And this is not my fault, they themselves detained the ship in Beirut, did not release it from the port, ”the captain said.
