Details: The Ukrainian Navy reported that the shelling took place between 7:15 and 7:30 am.

According to the statement, despite the shelling, at 10 am the Russian army announced that a humanitarian corridor had been opened for foreign ships just near the site of the shelling.


  • On the second day of the full-scale invasion, Russia blocked the passage of civilian ships along the Ukrainian Black Sea coast. 
  • On March 24, Russian Colonel-General Mykhailo Mizintsev, who led the bombing of Mariupol, said the Russian navy was allegedly ready to open a humanitarian corridor for foreign ships from Ukrainian ports.
  • On March 19, the Russian Defence Ministry said that Ukraine allegedly mined key sea routes from the Bosphorus to the Ukrainian coast. At the same time, a representative of the Sochi Maritime Administration named the exact number of mines that the Russians could not have counted themselves in the sea if Ukraine allegedly had done it.
  • On March 17, the Russians fired rockets on three civilian ships under the Panama flag.

At the beginning of the full-scale war, Turkey, in accordance with international conventions, blocked the passage of Russian military warships from the Mediterranean to the Black Sea.
