The Ukrainian side is studying scenarios for resolution of the situation in the Azov sea. The issue is complex, and it is not about the violation of the law of the Russian Federation, but of its abuse. This was announced by the Deputy Minister on issues temporarily occupied territories, the George Tooke, reports “Apostrophe”.
“The situation is very complicated, but I can’t say that we (the sea of Azov – ed.) is lost. I’m not ready to publish certain scenarios that we are exploring, including the use of force on unblocking. The issue is very complex. And I just would not want now, not having a solution, to talk about future actions,” he said.
Tuck I am sure that Russia is openly abuses its right.
“… there is such a term as abuse of right. Russia openly abuses its right. By the way, this also applies to our domestic legislation in relation to citizens. For example, when activists begin to break down the door, where going somewhere and saying: “we have rights!”, it is an abuse of discretion. There are certain scenarios, how to improve the situation. Of course, not alone, but with the help of our allies and partners. There are such opportunities,” – said the Deputy Minister.
We will remind, on July 15 in the Azov sea, Russia detained for a review of 148 vessels. In this regard, the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko instructed Minister of defense, the chief of the General staff and the Navy command of Ukraine to take measures to stop Russian provocations against blocking entry of ships in Ukrainian ports on the Azov sea.
Ukraine has also advocated the imposition of sanctions against the black sea ports of Russia due to the blockade of the sea of Azov.
