A bulk carrier flying the flag of Cameroon has requested assistance at sea near Tuapse. The ship leaned heavily on one side.

According to TASS, citing a source in emergency services, a dry cargo ship with fruit in the roadstead requested help due to a ten-degree roll to the port side. It is reported that this happened due to problems with the ballast system. There was no collision.

The port in Tuapse has allocated a tugboat that helps with pumping water. Repair of the broken system of the vessel is carried out by the crew on their own. However, the captain requested to be towed to a pier where the vessel could be grounded.
