Rescue Mission for Attacked Ukrainian Boats

Aug. 31, 2014 (Part 2 of 2) - Two Ukrainian patrol boats operating near the contested region of Donestk were shelled by artillery fired by unknown forces, the Ukrainian State Border Guard Service announced on Monday. The two patrol craft — a Kalakan-class and a Zhuk-class — attached to the Mauripol Marine Guard were operating about three miles from the costal town of Bezimenne on the Azoz Sea when they came under fire from land-based artillery, according to a Sunday update from the Border Guard. The barrage — likely by pro-Russian separatist forces — sank the Zhuk-class patrol craft. Eight of the Zhuk’s crew were rescued, seven were treated for burns and two remain missing.
