Six Russian Black Sea ports: Anapa, Novorossiysk, Gelendzhik, Tuapse, Sochi and Tamana are in the “war zone” – warned on Saturday the Ukrainian agency for navigation and hydrographic services.
This is Ukraine’s response to Russia’s withdrawal from the grain deal and Russia’s attacks on the infrastructure of Ukrainian ports, as well as Moscow’s announcement that it will treat all ships entering Ukrainian ports as military targets.
In response, the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine stated that it would treat all ships carrying military goods to Russian ports and Ukrainian ports not controlled by Kiev in the same way.
On Friday, as a result of the attack of sea drones on the base in Novorossiysk, the Russian ship Olenigorskij Gorniak was damaged. On the same day, sea drones attacked a Russian oil tanker SIG in the Kerch Strait.
