Russian Navy Ship Sinks After Black Sea Collision, All Crew Rescued...

A reconnaissance ship belonging to the Russian Navy has collided with another vessel near the Bosporus, the Russian Defense Ministry has reported.

The hull of ‘the Liman,’ a 1,560-ton reconnaissance ship of the Russian Black Sea Fleet, was breached below the waterline, with the crew fighting to keep the vessel afloat, the ministry said in a statement. 

Later, the Turkish coast guard said it rescued 78 people from the Russian ship, according to TASS.

According to the Defense Ministry, ‘the Liman’ collided with another ship, ‘Ashot-7,’ about 40km northwest from the Bosporus Strait.

Media identified the other ship involved in the collision as the Togo-flagged livestock carrier ‘Youzarsif H.’

‘The Liman’ was built during Soviet times in Poland and commissioned in 1970. It is mostly unarmed, but carries a radar station, a hydroacoustic detector and other reconnaissance equipment needed to track surface ships and submarines.
