As reported by ERT, the M/T Wind had recently docked in Russia and was headed for China. The attack caused flooding, resulting in the loss of propulsion and steering. A warship promptly responded to M/T Wind's distress call, although no assistance was required.

The crew of the M/T Wind successfully restored propulsion and steering, with no casualties reported. The M/T Wind continued its journey under its own power, according to the statement from the US administration.
