Protestors in a tiny inflatable dinghy attempted to block a yacht believed to belong to Roman Abramovich as it docked in a port in Turkey.

Video footage shared by Suspilne, Ukraine’s public broadcaster, shows a group of people sitting inside a small boat floating in the Aegean Sea as the £430m yacht towers in the background.

The vessel, named Solaris, docked at the port in southern Turkey after the coastguard forced the protesters to move.
