Ships in Ukrainian ports during the war: The commercial sea port of Chornomorsk

The Monitoring Group of BlackSeaNews
and the Black Sea Institute of Strategic Studies

The Monitoring Group of the Black Sea Institute of Strategic Studies and BlackSeaNews continues a series of articles about the fate of ships that were in Ukrainian ports on 24 February 2022, when Russia launched a full-scale invasion of many regions of Ukraine.

As of 24/02/2022, in the commercial sea port of Chornomorsk (the city of Chornomorsk, the Odesa region, Ukraine, port code UA ILK), in addition to port fleet vessels permanently based in Chornomorsk, there were 23 merchant ships (See Table 1). All of them have remained in port under blockade.

Most of the ships had arrived for loading in the port of Chornomorsk just 1-2 days before the full-blown war started on 24 February 2022.

The breakdown of vessels by country of shipowner registration

Turkey – 6

Ukraine – 4

Greece – 4

United Kingdom – 1

Slovakia – 1

Bulgaria – 1

Poland – 1

Georgia – 1

Japan – 1

China – 1

United Arab Emirates (in fact, Russia) – 1 (detained by the Office of the Ukrainian Prosecutor General)

Liberia – 1

Thus, out of 23 ships in the sea port of Chornomorsk, 6 belong to Turkish shipowners, 4 - to Ukrainian shipowners, 8 - to shipowners from the EU and the UK. Companies from Georgia, Japan, China, the UAE (in fact, Russia), and Liberia own one ship each.
