Part of the ships in the port of Mariupol will go under the jurisdiction of the Donetsk People's Republic, it will have its own merchant fleet, said the head of the DNR, Denis Pushilin, TASS reports.
“Appropriate decisions have already been made on this. The flags that will be on them [on the ships] are also already clear, — said Pushilin.
According to him, the ships will be renamed, and the port of Mariupol will be used for the delivery of building materials and equipment for the restoration of the cities of the republic. Pushilin also answered in the affirmative to the question of whether the DPR would have its own merchant fleet.
As of May 26, six foreign ships remained in the port of Mariupol— “Princess” (Bulgaria), Azburg (Dominican Republic), “Smart” (Liberia), Blue Star (Panama), “Azov Concorde” (Turkey), “Lady Augusta” (Jamaica), the Russian Defense Ministry reported. The leadership of the countries of the ship-owning companies did not take measures to withdraw these vessels, “despite the conditions created by the Russian side for a safe exit from the Mariupol water area,” the department noted.
According to Pushilin , foreign ships still remain in the port of Mariupol, and their crews were sent home.
In early May, the Investigative Committee of Russia reported that the port of Mariupol was mined. By May 26, Russian forces had eliminated the danger, and merchant ships can now safely use the harbor, the Defense Ministry said.
