SIMFEROPOL, September 29. /TASS/. An archaeological diving team has discovered an 18th century Turkish ship, sunk by prominent Russian naval commander, Admiral Fyodor Ushakov, in the Kerch Strait connecting the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov.
"The ship presumably dating back to the 18th century has been found and examined," Viktor Vakhoneev, deputy head of the Black Sea Underwater Research Center told TASS.
"It may be one of the ships drowned by Admiral Ushakov during the famous naval Battle of Kerch Strait in 1790 against the Ottoman Empire."
The Kerch Battle took place on July 19, 1790 near Kerch, Crimea, and was a slight victory for Imperial Russia over the Ottoman Empire during the Russo-Turkish War of 1787-1792. Admiral Ushakov was defending Crimea from Turkish conquerors, drowning several enemy’s ships, one of which was found recently.
According to Vakhoneev, the ship was found in a good condition and the research work will continue next year.
