The Ukrainian Navy’s search and rescue ship Donbas and the tugboat Korets have arrived at the port of Mariupol, Donetsk region, along with them two small armored artillery boats, the P177 Kremenchuk and the P178 Lubny, writes Interfax-Ukraine.

“Today, on September 25, at 09.35, the arrival of the tugboat Korets completed the transfer of a group of ships of the Ukrainian Navy to the port of Mariupol,” the Ukrainian Navy’s press service said on Facebook.

“Near the Mariupol raid in the anchorage area, a Russian border service boat of the Mangust type staged a provocation […] approaching on a dangerous distance close to Ukrainian boat. The Russian boat tried to get close to our ships at great speed, but determined actions of the crews of the Lubny and Kremenchuk vessels prevented it from getting too close to the Donbas and the Korets,” the post said.
