From a Finnish news site:

A  250-metre Greek oil tanker sailing west from the Russian port of Primorsk ran aground off the island of Suursaari in the Gulf of Finland early on Friday.

The Finnish Coast Guard told the Finnish News Agency (STT) that although the ship's ballast tanks had been damaged no oil leaks had been detected.

The double-hulled tanker, called MT Propontis, was carrying 100,000 tonnes of crude oil.

At 9am (GMT+2), the ship was stable in the middle of the gulf, some 50km south of the Finnish port of Loviisa.

The Coast Guard contacted Estonian and Russian rescue authorities and sent offshore patrol craft VL Merikarhu to the area.

MT Propontis was built last year and has a complement of 25. The vessel's draught is 14 metres.
