The 114 meter long, 3134 dwt freighter Dolphin 7 collided with the 77 meter long, 372 dwt ice breaker tug Kapitan Demidov in the Kerch Strait. The Kapitan Demidov slowed as it was breaking a passage through the ice, but the Dolphin 7 was too close and struck the icebreaker’s stern. The Dolphin 7 bow was damaged with a small hole above the waterline. No reports of injuries or pollution being released.
