Kiev blocked 70 foreign ships in its ports - Russian military

Russian National Defense Control Center head Mikhail Mizintsev said on Friday that the Kiev government has blocked 70 ships from 16 foreign countries from leaving its ports.

"In six ports (Kherson, Mykolaiv, Chernomorsk, Ochakov, Odesa and Yuzhny), 70 foreign ships from 16 states remain blocked. The threat of shelling and high mine danger created by Kyiv do not allow ships to move freely into the open sea," he noted.

Mizintsev highlighted that, while Moscow is contributing to UN efforts of organizing a humanitarian corridor for agricultural exports from the territory of Ukraine, the Kiev government is "evading" all initiatives to clear its Black Sea shores from mines and restore safe conditions for the continuation of shipments.
