According to official data obtained from a source in the CHVMF ship successfully arrived to the shores of the Syrian Arab Republic. Information on the event of the launch was completely refuted.
Earlier it was reported that the ship got a serious hole during a collision with a Russian launch carrying fuel oil. Only by luck, the launch did not explode, although a fire occurred on it. The hole that the frigate received has a small size, but is in a very inconvenient place, so for the time being it cannot be repaired. Pumps are constantly working on the tide of the incoming water, but by the night the situation may worsen.
Victims were also reported. According to sources, they were two sailors who were at the time of the collision on the longboat.
We continue to monitor the situation, and we will keep our readers informed of further developments.
