Dockworkers in Kent, UK, on Friday refused to unload two cargoes of liquified natural gas exported from Russia's Yamal LNG project, forcing the vessels to look for an alternative docking location.

The LNG carriers Boris Vilkitsky and Fedor Litke were scheduled to dock at the Isle of Grain, the largest LNG import terminal in Europe. Instead workers refused to unload the cargoes, citing their opposition to Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine.
