A Russian naval reconnaissance ship "Liman" has crashed with a ship carrying livestock in the Black Sea, near Turkey, and is in danger of sinking.

Russia's defence ministry said the Liman was holed as a result of the collision that happened on Thursday about 40km (25 miles) northwest of the Bosphorus Strait. 

The ministry statement, carried by Russian news agencies, said none of the crew members were hurt and they are trying to save the ship.

The transport vessel was flying a Togo flag.

According to a Turkish coastal safety official, some 78 personnel have been rescued from the Liman.

But a separate dispatch suggested 15 Russian soldiers were missing after the crash.
