Traced a hint in a German shipping forum :

RUNNER 4 (IMO 7514555 – ex: Runner, Kassar, Kassari, Frisohaven, Ivan Rabchinskiy, LEIDSEGRACHT/Spliethoff) sunk after collision in the Gulf of Finland. All crew rescued by a Russian icebreaker.

Do our members from Finland have more precise information ?

Well, not much more... She was in a convoy led by the Russian icebreaker KAPITAN SOROKIN near the lighthouse of Vaindloo, in the Estonian territorial waters. The RUNNER-4 got stuck in ice (despite the iceabreaker) and the general cargo SVYATITEL APOSTOL ANDREY (IMO 9247601) which was behind the Runner-4 couldn't stop fast enough and so they collided. The Runner-4 was carrying aluminium and had a crew of 14, all of which were rescued.
