In facing up to the sea of Azov it is necessary to follow the path of de-escalation and solve the problems through diplomacy. This broadcast channel “112 Ukraine”, said political analyst Kirill Molchanov.
“We have an agreement that the sea of Azov is internal and each of the parties has the right of inspection of any goods. I think that we should go for de-escalation of the situation in the first place by diplomatic means. If we go only by the principle of increasing confrontation that they had arrested our fishermen, we arrested them fishermen, it will lead to the fact that we will lose all economic benefits from these two ports. So, I think we should look for diplomatic contacts or through third countries, our partners to call upon to help in this situation. You may need to discuss this TAG in Minsk or Normandy format. It is necessary to look for opportunities to take a step back, so that our companies do not bear such economic losses,” – said Molchanov.
