Ukrainian river-sea cruise liner "General Vatutin" changed its course for unknown reasons and headed for Russia, according to Odesa agency "Dumskaya".

It departed from Kyiv on June 1 on the so-called "hot" cruise. But without entering another cruise destination — Odesa port, — it went from Kherson to Izmail directly, and then made a transition to Vylkove.

Yesterday, at 5 a.m. it left Vylkove and suddenly headed for Crimea. The ship spend night near the south bank of the occupied peninsula, and resumed the journey today morning.

According to the ship tracking map Marine Traffic, "General Vatutin" moves towards Russia. It is currently near the Kerch Peninsula. Russia’s Rostov-on-Don appears to be the destination.

Cruise company which organizes tours on "Vatutin", said to "Dumskaya" that it has no information on the ship’s movement.
