Access the latest Triton Scout Maritime Security Threat Assessment for the week commencing Monday 28th February 2022.
👉 On 24 February 22 Russian forces commenced operations within Ukraine which included blocking inward access to the Sea of Azov. All commercial operations at Ukrainian Sea Ports have since been suspended. Dryad Global advises all commercial operators avoid any transit or operations within the EEZ of Ukraine and Russia south of the Crimean Peninsula in the Black Sea. Commercial operations in the EEZ of Turkey, Bulgaria and Romania are unaffected at this time. The primary risk to vessels beyond the key risk area is the high degree of uncertainty regarding freedom of navigation in the Black Sea rather than a risk to safety of crew. It is not believed Russia holds any intent to target foreign or civilian vessels outside of the key risk areas. Since the outbreak of hostilities, a number of vessels have been struck by missiles within waters south of the Ukrainian port of Odessa.
