He said the size of the spill was unclear and that emergencies services were working to deploy temporary floating barriers to contain the spill but were being delayed by the stormy conditions. Tuapse is a busy industrial and oil port but is located close to many Russian Black Sea resorts. It is just 118 km (73 miles) from the town of Sochi which hosted the 2014 Winter Olympics. Two Tuapse residents told Reuters they had seen oil in the sea and in a river along which the pipeline runs towards the Tuapse oil refinery operated by state oil firm Rosneft .
