A ship chartered by Cargill Inc. was hit while sailing in Ukrainian waters in the Black Sea and is currently sailing south to Romanian waters to receive assistance, the U.S. agricultural trading giant said.

“The vessel and all crew are safe and accounted for,” Cargill said Thursday in a statement. The vessel was empty when the incident occurred, the company said.
