Ukraine suffers major setback: Moscow sinks two ships in the Black Sea

The Russian Ministry of Defense claims that in the early hours, two unmanned boats of the Ukrainian Navy were identified and attacked in the Black Sea.

The Ministry reports that demining and anti-sabotage measures are being carried out in the bay of Sevastopol in Crimea, as the German news website reports citing the state news agency Tass.

Cargo ships reach Ukraine

Due to the newly established shipping corridor in the Black Sea, more cargo ships are reaching Ukrainian ports, as the German news platform announced. On Saturday, five ships docked in various ports in the Odessa region, as Andrii Klymenko from the Institute for Black Sea Strategic Studies reports. These ships belong to various owners from Greece, Turkey, Panama, and Liberia. In addition, four ships with a combined capacity of more than 168,000 tons have left Ukrainian ports. The establishment of this corridor took place after Russia withdrew from the grain agreement for safe grain export via the Black Sea last summer.
