INTERCARGO was deeply saddened and concerned to hear of the reported appalling missile attack on the 91,900dwt bulk carrier KMAX Ruler in the port of Odessa, which led to the death of a pilot and injury to four crew members onboard.
Non combat vessels
Bulk carriers, manned by innocent seafarers, represent the epitome of non-combatant vessels, and any assault on them is both reprehensible and inexcusable.
In light of this tragic incident, it is crucial for all nations in the Black Sea region to unite in ensuring the safety and security of our seafarers, who play an integral role in global trade and prosperity.
INTERCARGO’s thoughts and condolences go out to the families of the seafarers affected in this tragic incident. Their Association will continue to monitor the situation in the area very closely.
