Syrian sailors stranded in Kherson port due to threats from the Ukrainian side

Mustafa Tartusi, the captain of a Syrian ship stuck in the Ukrainian port of Kherson since the beginning of the Russian special military operation, announced that the ship could not leave due to threats from the Ukrainian side.


Tartoussi said in a statement to the Russian "Novosti" agency that "the stranded Syrian ship "Sea Lord" cannot leave due to the lack of guarantees from the Ukrainian side."



He added, "We cannot leave for security reasons. The Russian side assured us and sent us a notice that the road is passable on its side and that civilian ships can follow their path, but the danger remains from the Ukrainian side."
