Private Superforecasting Workshop asks:

Before 1 July 2024, will NATO or a NATO member state publicly accuse Russia of attacking a crewed, non-Ukrainian-flagged vessel in the Black Sea outside of Ukrainian and Russian territorial waters?

As Russia's war in Ukraine grinds on, Ukraine has tried to restart trade via the Black Sea after the expiration of the Black Sea Grain Initiative in July 2023 (Yahoo, UN - Black Sea Grain Initiative, Farm Policy News). For the purposes of this question, "attacking" means striking a pertinent vessel with a weapon (e.g., bullets, missiles, but not fire hoses, throwing garbage, etc.) or deliberately ramming that vessel with another vessel.
