The Black Sea contaminated with fuel

The Black Sea is one of the most popular holiday destinations in Europe. The Ukrainian media has just reported that a dangerous fuel leak occurred offshore on the banks of Odessa. As it turns out, this is another fuel leak from this tanker. The big stain was moving towards the beach, and tourists were warned against getting into the water. The beach was closed and tourists were forced to leave the area.

The tanker got stuck in the shallow water last year. Media reports that an absorbent was used and leakage was located. Experts also took water samples, but research is still underway. The ship is Moldavian. The tanker was supposed to be removed before the start of the summer season, and the set deadline is June 25. However, it is still unknown when the ship will disappear from the resort.
