According to reports, the Russian Ministry of Defense reported that on August 8, the patrol ship "Vasily Bekov" of the Black Sea Fleet was inspecting ships in the southwestern Black Sea when it found a cargo ship bound for the port of Izmail in Ukraine.

According to a previous report by the Russian Satellite News Agency, the Russian Ministry of Defense issued a statement on July 7 saying that in view of the fact that the agreement on the export of agricultural products from Black Sea ports has expired and the maritime humanitarian corridor has been closed, from 19:7 Moscow time on July 20, Russia will treat all ships along the Black Sea waters to Ukrainian ports as potential military cargo carriers. The Russian Ministry of Defense has also declared some waters in the northwest and southeast of the international waters of the Black Sea as temporary navigation warning zones.
