A $500 million megayacht that’s connected to sanctioned Russian tycoon Alexey Mordashov has mysteriously ended up in Hong Kong after a more than week-long voyage from the port of Vladivostok where it was last anchored.

It had been docked there since March after stops in the Maldives and Seychelles over the northern hemisphere winter. The 465-foot Nord -- longer than the length of an American football field -- left the Seychelles on March 12, was parked briefly in Sri Lanka and arrived in Vladivostok later that month.
