Edit: another angle
This is obvious incompetence. Not only was the there the high chance of killing people, but the chain was not supposed to drag along the ground
since it could have got caught on some obstacle causing the anchor to fly off and rip up the deck railing and maybe even the joint between
the deck and the hull. That is not a cheap, cosmetic repair.
Russia is still afflicted by this sort of culture of shoddy workplace behaviour since the USSR period and even before 1917. Many 3rd world
countries have similar cultural issues. But there has been substantial evolution away from this since 1991. But it will take a couple of generations
to entrench the new culture and for the old one to finally fade away.
