Russian crew, I guess it may have been loaned from a passenger - we will never know. Thanks for your comments.

I assume she removed hammer and sickle from the red bikini before she jumped...

It was the Leonid Sobinov (ex Saxonia) when in 1979 an 18 old Ukrainian woman went through a port hole and jumped into Sydney harbour and swam ashore in a red bikini. She was granted asylum. Thank you both for commenting.

Is this the one a girl jumped from? She was granted asylum , then .is seems.

Sailed on her in 85. Hand held shower heads, entertainment by Russian crew, we had a great time.
