Turkish 'sadness' after Russian navy ship sinks

Russian Navy reconnaissance frigate Liman leaves from the Black Sea fleet's base at Sevastopol Crimean peninsula. Russia's Defense Ministry reported Thursday

Turkey's state-run news agency says that the prime minister has called his Russian counterpart to express his "sadness" over a ship collision in the Black Sea.

A Russian navy reconnaissance ship has sunk off Istanbul after colliding with a freighter in the Black Sea.

No other details have been provided.

A number of tugboats and rescue boats were dispatched to the area by the Coast Guard following the collision between the Russian vessel and the Togo-flagged ship, which was carrying livestock.

The Russian military said it is trying to identify the owner of the Ashot-7 ship.

It said the vessel "sustained a hull breach due to a collision" some 25 miles northwest of the Bosphorus Strait.

The Russian Defence Ministry said all 78 people aboard its ship were safe and that nobody had been injured among the crew.
