A cargo ship owned by a Japanese firm was hit by a missile off the coast of Ukraine in the Black Sea on Friday, injuring one crew member, the marine transportation firm in western Japan said Saturday, as heavy fighting ensued following the Russian invasion of its former Soviet neighbor.

The Panamanian-registered cargo ship Namura Queen was damaged and one of the 20 Filipino crew sustained a nonlife-threatening injury to his shoulder, according to the firm based in Imabari, Ehime Prefecture.
