“The incident happened in neutral waters of the Sea of Azov as border guards chased poachers’ vessel. Suddenly, the vessel turned back and tried to ram into the border guards’ motorboat, but it broke apart after the collision. The preliminary information available indicates that two poachers died and another one was hospitalized with injuries. A search for two more people continues,” he said.

According to the Black Sea and Azov department of Russia’s coast guard service, the Ukrainian boat was in Russian waters when Russian ship Mangust spotted it.

“After fruitless attempts to contact the offenders, the commander of the border guard boat ordered approaching the vessel to an acceptable distance and examining it. However, the boat dashed off and made for the Ukrainian coast,” the department said in a statement.
