On Thursday, the “Sormovsky-48” dry cargo ship, belonging to a Turkish company, has entered a prohibited zone in the area of the Crimean Bridge construction
As the press office of the Federal Agency of Maritime and River Transport said in its official statement, the dry cargo ship travelled along the Kerch Canal from the direction of the Black Sea at a distance of more than 1 cable to the north from the Kerch-Yenikalsk Canal.
This is the second suspicious incident this month involving a Turkish dry cargo ship in the area of the Crimean Bridge construction. On the 19th of March, the Turkish “Lira” dry cargo ship ran into the poles of a temporary bridge that was under construction at the Kerch Bridge site.
The “Sormovsky-48” dry cargo ship was under the flag of the Federation of Saint Kitts and Nevis - a two-island country in the West Indies. There were 11 crew members on board the vessel and a captain who was a citizen of the Russian Federation. It entered the prohibited shipping area, where movement is limited due to security requirements in connection with the Kerch Bridge construction.
