Ice-free arctic update: Icebreaker sent to save icebreaker that was sent to rescue non-ice-breakers

EU Referendum: Tar baby
The worse it seems to get with the Okhotsk Sea crisis, the less information we seem to get. But the latest bulletin (already some hours old) tells us that the Krasin has began a rescue operation to release the Bereg Nadezhdy fish carrier and the Admiral Makarov icebreaker.

This is almost "tar baby" territory, where one ship gets stuck, another goes into to get it, and it gets stuck as well, with another then sent in after it.
