This is coolbert:

Once more naval combat action the Black Sea. That Cargill AG merchant vessel not the only shipping foreign-flagged ships under attack by sources the identity of which has not been determined with certainty.

The Ukrainians say the Russians did it. The Russians say the Ukrainians did it. The first casualty of war is the truth?

"Ukraine: Russian Missiles Hit 2 Commercial Ships Near Odessa Port"

Odessa seaport (Dreamstime) Friday, 25 February 2022 11:08 PM.

"Ukraine said Russian warships shelled a Moldovan-flagged chemical tanker and a Panamanian-flagged cargo ship due to load grain near Odessa port in the Black Sea on Friday, one day after Russia began a full-scale invasion of Ukraine."

"A total of three non-military vessels have now been hit since the start of the invasion. On Thursday, the Turkish-owned Yasa Jupiter cargo ship was struck off Odessa."

Consider the world-wide ramification of the port of Odessa made unviable for merchant vessel traffic:

"Ukraine and Russia account for 25% of global trade in wheat and 20% of corn sales. With port and railway closures in Ukraine, Bloomberg Agriculture Spot Index has risen to record highs."

Folks, watch it!
