(Bloomberg) — Russia’s state-run oil pipeline operator said the Black Sea port of Novorossiysk had resumed operations after an overnight attack by naval drones led to a halt in traffic for several hours.
Transneft PJSC said the hub suffered no damage and ships were moving again, according to the Tass news service. The Russian Defense Ministry earlier reported it had destroyed two drones in the attempted assault, while 10 unmanned aerial vehicles had been shot down and three more jammed in an attack on occupied Crimea.
Ukraine started talks with the US on bilateral security commitments, President Volodymyr Zelenskiy’s office said in a statement. Kyiv said it expects these commitments to accelerate Ukraine’s progress in its efforts to join NATO and the European Union.
