According to doctors, the cause of death of one of the sailors could have been a heart attack. Now the bodies of the dead are sent for autopsy.

It is also known that the dead sailors did not show any symptoms of Covid-19. Investigation into the incident continues.
Earlier the International Court of Arbitration will hold the first hearing in the case of Ukraine against Russia. Ukraine sues Russia for capturing the Ukrainian military vessels and their crew members in the Kerch Strait in November 2018. Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba reported that on Twitter.
According to the Minister, it is a pivotal case for Ukraine; it is supposed to prove the Russian agression, illegal detention of Ukrainian vessels and sailors, and the illegal trial against the military servicemen. Ukraine will protect the principles of the international maritime law, he said.
"The case is also of major importance for the world since Ukraine uses facts and legal positions to prove that the absolute immunity of military vessels is a basic principle and a commitment, according to the international maritime law, and it must be observed by all countries, and its violations are punished", the Minister said.
