The day before, the FSB reported a second foreign ship leaving Turkey with traces of explosives. Traces of dinitrotoluene and trotyl were found in the hold of a dry cargo ship that was sailing from the Turkish port of Sinop through the Kerch Strait to Rostov-on-Don for grain. The special service believes that the ship could previously be used to deliver explosives to the territory of Ukraine. The crew was forbidden to pass through the Kerch Strait and demanded to leave the territorial waters of Russia. The first ship with traces of explosives was discovered on 22 July.
The Kremlin did not rule out new attacks on the bridge. When asked to comment on reports of the discovery of traces of explosives on a foreign dry cargo ship, Dmitry Peskov said: “Indeed, the traces of explosives found indicate that there is a danger. This requires a constant level of heightened vigilance.”
