The Chinese Consulate confirmed on Tuesday that two Chinese fishing ships have been detained off Russia's Far-East region. The Consulate said it was notified by the coastal service of Russia's Far-East Primorsky region.

One ship was detained at the port of Nakhodka, while the other ship was heading there. Both ships were from the city of Weihai in China’s eastern Shandong Province, and one carried 17 fishermen while the other had 19 on board.

According to the RIA Novosti news agency, a Russian coastguard vessel fired warning shots and then opened targeted fire to stop a Chinese fishing ship that had been fishing for squid. None of the Chinese fishermen were killed or wounded during the incident. In 2009, a Russian naval vessel fired at a Chinese cargo ship, causing it to sink and killing eight people.
