During an attack by Russian forces on the city of Kherson on the evening of January 24, 2023, a fire broke out on the Tusla ship, a Turkish ship.

details: As a result of the attack on Cherson, a fire broke out in a command room of the ship. The crew was not on board, so they could not prevent the fire.
Sources from TGRT have stated that there was “a loud explosion” after a strike on the ship. Reuters said a Russian missile hit the ship.
It is noted that the Tuzla was one of the ships stuck in Ukrainian ports since February 2022, the start of the all-out Russian invasion of Ukraine.
Reuters shipping source said 12 Turkish ships are stranded in Ukrainian ports, including the city of Kherson, which are not covered by the UN-brokered Black Sea Grains Agreement.
“There was an attack last night, most likely on the port, and an explosive charge appears to have struck the ship. Turkish ships in Kherson are manned by an emergency crew, so there are no injuries or casualties,” the source said on condition of anonymity.
background: In November 2022, Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry called on China to require Russia to immediately halt attacks on Ukraine’s critical infrastructure after Russian forces struck a facility owned by a Chinese company.
