Livestock carrier Youzarsif H collided with Russian Navy ship Liman off Turkish coast in the Black Sea yesterday.

The livestock carrier was sailing from Capu Midia to Aqaba and hit the navy ship in heavy fog. The navy ship suffered a hull breach and water ingress, which led to the sinking of the ship.

Turkish authorities dispatched a tugboat and three rescue vessels to the scene and the nearby Russian cargo ship Ulus Star also joined the rescue operations. Youzarsif H survived the collision and helped picked up 15 Russian sailors.

According to the Turkish coast guard, all 78 crew on the navy ship have been rescued and no injures were reported.

Youzarsif H is operated by Lebanon-based La Mer Shipping and Liman was part of Russia’s Black Sea fleet.
