LIBERIA'S STATEMENT CONCERNING LIBERIAN FLAGGED VESSEL, KMAX RULER (IMO No. 9436642)

The Liberia Maritime Authority ("LİMA") has been informed by the owners of the Liberia flagged vessel, KMAX RULER, that it was struck by an anti- radar mnissile on or about November 8, 2023 near Pivdennyi Seaport in the Ukrainian city of Yuzhne near Odesa, killing a Ukrainian pilot, injuring three (3) crew members (Filipino nationals), and damaging the vessel's bridge and superstructure.

LiMA strongly condemns the attack on the KMAX RULER, and has launched an investigation into the attack on our flagged vessel. We respectfully call on the authorities of the Port of Odesa to investigate the matter pursuant to international law and applicable international conventions, agreements, and codes.

We stand together with all in the maritime sector to ensure the wellbeing, safety and security of seafarers, and remain steadfast in ensuring the safety and security of ships engaged in international trade.

LİMA's thoughts and best wishes are with the bereaved families as well as the injured seafarers and their families.
