Cargill’s three-year-old 61,000-tonne ‘Yasa Jupiter’ was hit on Thursday, Feb. 24 by a projectile after leaving port city Odessa in Ukraine, which is one of the war-torn country’s largest port cities.

Photos taken by the ship’s crew show that the bridge’s windows had been blown in as a result of the attack and what looks like an explosion.

A Cargill spokesperson has confirmed none of the crew were injured.
The 200 meter long ultramax carrier “Yasa Jupiter” is chartered by Cargill and is owned by the Turkish shipping company Yasa Shipping.
Ukraine is known to be one of the world’s largest grain exporters, including wheat, a crucial ingredient in salmon feed.
