Last month, a large Ukrainian supply boat sunk after a crash with a Chinese cargo boat, apart from seven sailors who were rescued, eighteen sailors disappeared.

Over a week after the supply boat sank, firefighter-divers undertook 55 underwater searches, and entered the boat’s cabin.

But because the current was too strong at the location, and in addition, underwater visibility was extremely low, that increased the difficulty of the recovery.

After firefighter-divers ceased their underwater search, forty divers alternated in undertaking the recovery work.

Due to the turbidity of the water, underwater visibility was unclear, and the strong currents, this made the recovery work extremely difficult.

Yesterday the supply boat was finally brought to the surface; currently there are still eleven sailors who have not been located.
