Ukraine has no plans to conduct missile tests in the Kerch Strait, said the NSDC Secretary Oleksandr Turchynov, commenting on the statements of the Russian side about the alleged violation by the Ukrainian side “of the airspace of the Russian Federation” during the “test missiles” in the area of the Kerch Strait.
“Hysteria Russia that Ukraine, violating all international agreements, has unilaterally taken a decision on the implementation of missile tests in the “sovereign airspace of the Russian Federation,” devoid of common sense,” he said.
According to Turchynov, according to all international agreements that the sovereign airspace of the Russian Federation in the Black sea ends up in the middle of the Kerch Strait. “In this area Ukraine has no plans to conduct missile tests. The rest of the territory West of the Kerch Strait is the sovereign airspace of Ukraine”, – he said, adding that the missile test Ukraine carries out under all international obligations and treaties.
“Therefore, we ask Russia not to interfere with the testing of his tantrums and provocations,” Turchinov.
We will remind, Russia accuses Ukraine of intention to conduct a missile firing in the area annexed Crimea. This is stated in the statement of the Federal air transport Agency of Russia (Rosaviatsia). Russia immediately demanded to cancel the decision.
