At least ten sailors were killed in the fire of two cargo ships off the Crimean Peninsula. This was announced by the Russian Ministry of Transport.

 

More than a dozen crew members have been brought to safety during the incident in the Kerch Strait.

 

They suffered partial burn injuries and hypothermia. The rescue work continued in the evening.

 

Altogether, according to the Russian agency Interfax, 31 sailors from India and Turkey were on board.

 

The fire was probably triggered by an explosion. Both ships sailed under the flag of Tanzania, one of them was a gas tanker.

 

The situation around the Crimea, which was annexed by Russia in 2014, is tense. Russian border guards shot down three Ukrainian naval ships there in November.
