The Russian invading forces hit the Moldovan tanker Millennial Spirit drifting in the Black Sea with a missile, Operational Command “South” reported in its Telegram channel on July 7.

"During another airstrike in Odesa Oblast, two Kh-31 missiles were fired from the Su-30 aircraft. One hit the Millennial Spirit tanker," the update reads.

The Moldovan-flagged vessel was disabled by the Russian Federation at the beginning of the invasion of Ukraine, and since then it has been drifting without a crew with the remains of fuel, which reignited as a result of the new missile strike.

"Due to the blockade of the maritime traffic, the tanker has been drifting in the sea without a crew for four months like an ecological time bomb," the Ukrainian military said.
