As told to journalists in the Public Relations Center of the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation, the border guard ship “Izumrud” (Emerald) received a signal that an unidentified vessel is in distress in the Karkinitsky Gulf.

As a result, border guards who came to the aid of the navigator discovered a capsized trimaran “Fortuna X-44” and a life raft with a Ukrainian citizen on board – 12 miles southwest of Cape Tarkhankut.

The man was taken aboard the FSB ship, who rendered him first aid. The traveler explained that he “is fond of extreme sports and attempted to cross from Ukraine to Turkey, but as a result of a strong current and loss of orientation, the vessel rolled over.”

The man was taken to the shore, after which he went back to the Ukraine.
