During a 10-week period, Russia detained for inspection 93 foreign ships heading to Ukraine’s ports in the Sea of Azov

During a 10-week period, Russia detained for inspection 93 foreign ships heading to Ukraine’s ports in the Sea of Azov, says Yuriy Lavrenyuk, deputy Infrastructure Minister of Ukraine. Referring to the April 29 to July 9 period, the ministry’s press service quotes him saying: “As a result of such inspections, the vessels are idle from several hours to several days. Ship owners unjustifiably suffer significant expenses.” Due to this harassment, freight volumes are down by double digits this year at the two ports: Berdyansk, the port for Zaporizhie, and Mariupol, the port for Donetsk.
