Jul 10, 2024

Ukraine has detained a cargo ship sailing from a port occupied by the Russian Federation.

This was reported by RBC-Ukraine, citing a statement by Ukrainian Navy spokesman Dmytro Pletenchuk and Lloyd's List.


Today, information appeared online that Ukraine allegedly detained a ship on the Danube that entered Ukrainian waters after a voyage to annexed Sevastopol.

As noted, the vessel's agent and broker claim that the Usko Mfu was intercepted by a military boat while in Romanian waters, as the Danube is a narrow waterway, and the specific section of the Danube that the Usko Mfu was sailing through borders both Romania and Ukraine.

At the same time, the newspaper noted that barley was loaded on board, allegedly bound for Greece.

Pletenchuk said that the structures subordinate to the Ukrainian Navy had indeed detained a cargo ship today, which, contrary to Ukrainian and international law, had entered Ukrainian ports occupied by Russia for commercial purposes.

"It was detained in compliance with all relevant procedures. Thus, it will not be possible to ignore the legal requirements of Ukraine in the Black Sea," the spokesman said.
