In the Kerch Strait 170 courts – state border service

В Керченском проливе 170 судов – Госпогранслужба

Peter Cigital told about the situation in the Kerch Strait

Russia have conceded in the first place of their own and foreign vessels that go to Russian ports and ships bound for Ukrainian ports, says Peter Cigital.

In the Kerch Strait are about 170 ships that are waiting to pass. About this stated the head of the state border service Peter Cigital in interview to TV channel UATV on the eve of Monday, December 3.

According to him, these vessels are expected to pass both in one and in the other direction.

“There is a quiet economic blockade. Almost the way they (the Russians – ed.) have not changed, only worsened the problem. Accordingly, such a number of ships in a small channel affects the safety of navigation”, – said Chical.

According to him, Russia ignores their own and foreign vessels that go to Russian ports and then the ships that are sent to Ukrainian ports. So the last stand for much longer.

The head of the border Agency also said that the day 2 December the Russians conceded only seven ships in both directions to/from ports of Ukraine. Also a few days ago in the Kerch Strait were more than 400 ships.

Earlier it became known that Russia has partially unblocked the ports of Ukraine on the Azov. Currently, there is movement of ships through the Kerch Strait in the direction of the Ukrainian ports. This was stated by Minister of infrastructure Volodymyr Omelian.

It was also reported about the crash of marine vessels due to the blocking by Russia of the Kerch Strait.
