Despite threats from Russia: Numerous ships use the Black Sea corridor

The US Ambassador to Ukraine, Bridget Brink, announced that six additional ships have successfully traversed the humanitarian corridor in the Black Sea.

In total, 27 ships are now reported to have taken this route, as reported by the German news platform Brink emphasizes on platform X that “Russia’s violent conflict cannot prevent Ukrainian grain and valuable cargo from reaching the world.” It is noteworthy that Russia has previously made threats against merchant ships.

Ukraine Should Take Responsibility The UK has warned of the possibility that Russia could attack civilian ships in the Black Sea and attribute the responsibility to Ukraine, as the German news platform reported in the past. The Defence Ministry in London indicated that intelligence information suggested this. The British assume that Russia might use sea mines near Ukrainian ports to stage such attacks.

Several weeks ago, the British government accused Russia of attempting an attack on a civilian freighter in the Black Sea. Foreign Minister James Cleverly stressed, “The world is watching this situation closely, and we see through Russia’s cynical attempts to hold Ukraine responsible for these attacks.” The US government had also previously warned of possible Russian attacks.
