Russian occupation forces have hit two tugboats involved in the transportation of grain during an attack on the port infrastructure in the Mykolaiv region.
The Ukrainian Armed Forces’ Southern Operational Command stated this at a news briefing on 31 October.
"The enemy continues to attack the port infrastructure in the Ochakiv direction. A fire broke out when two port civilian tugboats involved in the transportation of grain barges were hit. Control of the vessels was lost. Two crew members were killed, one was rescued with injuries, and the fate of another is unknown," the Ukrainian military said.
The military also said that the Ukrainian Armed Forces destroyed two barges that the Russian occupation forces used to transport weapons and military equipment across River Dnipro near the Antonivskyi bridge last week.
