Agreement in Principle Reached for Release of Ever Given
ISMAILIA, June 23 (Reuters) – The owners and insurers of a giant cargo ship that blocked the Suez Canal in March have reached agreement in principle in a compensation dispute...
After being intentionally sunk this past March at the entrance to Donuzlav Bay in western Crimea in order to effectively block the movement of any Ukrainian naval vessels out of port, specialists from Russian Black Sea Fleet have refloated the large Kara-classs cruiser Ochakov.
Over 400 metal plates were installed on the ship to help make her water tight and the ship was drained by using hydraulic and electric pumps at a rate of 6.5 thousand cubic meters per hour.

The ship has a displacement of 8500 tons, a length of almost 180 meters and was raised and towed to one of the piers of Donuzlava to await her fate. She had previously been laid up since 201.
