“Spanish authorities on Wednesday [March 16, 2022] detained a mega-yacht called “Crescent” that is believed to belong to Igor Sechin, the sanctioned chief executive of Russian oil giant Rosneft, a police source told Reuters,” according to a  report from Reuters.

On September 22, 2016, The American Report broke the story of Gulftainer’s connections to Saddam’s nuclear scientist Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar and former KGB agents Vladimir Putin and Igor Sechin, known as “Russia’s Darth Vader” and “the scariest person on earth.”

‘Crescent’ “can accommodate 18 guests with a crew of more than 24” and “is rumored to have cost more than US$ 600 million,” according to

French authorities reportedly seized another yacht owned by Sechin on March 2, the Amore Velo.

The megayacht Crescent is registered in the Cayman Islands, where many vessels are registered and where the powerful Iraqi Jafar family conducts business.

[Spanish] Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said in an interview police had provisionally immobilised a $140 million yacht in Barcelona. That vessel belongs to Sergei Chemezov, a former KGB officer who heads state conglomerate Rostec, according to two sources.

The Canaveral Port Authority’s 35-year lease contract with Gulftainer subsidiary GT USA appears to have been illegal.

From The Perfect Storm, by Mary Fanning and Alan Jones:

Both Hamid Jafar and Jafar Dhia Jafar were involved in the oil for WMD super weapons scam with Saddam Hussein and with the Russians. The Treasury Department lists the Jafars’ Russian business associate and their partner in the Jafars’ holding Dana Gas, Igor Sechin, as an SDN (Specially Designated National).  The Port Canaveral contract prohibits the Jafars from doing business with SDNs or Blocked Persons as Igor Sechin is designated as presenting a threat to the United States. The Jafars’ false information presented through their creation of downstream false front companies was to create a false picture hiding share allotments and their true business associations.

The Washington Post wrote in 2014:

When Igor Sechin was working as President Vladimir Putin’s deputy chief of staff a decade ago, visitors to his Kremlin office noticed an unusual collection on the bookshelves: row after row of bound volumes containing minutes of Communist Party congresses.

The record stretched across the history of the party and its socialist predecessor — from the first meeting in March 1898 to the last one in July 1990, a year and a half before the Soviet Union collapsed.

Sechin perused the documents and took notes, says Dmitry Skarga, who at the time was chief executive of Russia’s largest shipping company, OAO Sovcomflot.

“He was drinking from this fountain of sacred knowledge so that Russia could restore its superpower status and take its rightful place in the world,” Skarga says.

Sechin’s back-to-the-future fascination with his country’s communist past is something he shares with Putin, who, soon after coming to power in 1999, restored the music (though not the lyrics) of the Soviet-era national anthem and later described the collapse of the U.S.S.R. as the greatest geopolitical catastrophe of the 20th century.

Sechin is an open admirer of socialist icons such as Cuba’s ailing Fidel Castro, the late anti-U.S. Venezuelan leader Hugo Chávez and the executed Argentine Marxist Che Guevara, says Victor Mashendzhinov, who studied with Sechin at college. As a young man, Sechin served alongside Cuban fighters in the Cold War hot spots of Angola and Mozambique.
