In the area of the Kerch Strait has accumulated a large number of ships

20%, idle in the Kerch Strait vessels belong to countries of the European Union.

Every fifth ship, which stops in Russia and forced to stand for several days in the sea of Azov belongs to the European shipowners. On Friday, December 7, during a meeting with the transport Minister of France said the Minister of infrastructure of Ukraine Volodymyr Omelyan, the press service of the Ministry.

He also noted that the daily simple each vessel is estimated from 10 to 50 thousand dollars.

“Every fifth ship, which stops in Russian and waits a few days, under the European flag. Simple daily vessel costs from 10 to 50 thousand dollars. As a result, European taxpayers have to pay extra for the fact that Russia has decided to ignore international law,” said Omeljan.

Infrastructure Minister thanked France for the support of Ukraine in a situation with the aggression of Russia in the Azov sea, noting that this is a problem not only our country but also throughout Europe.

“This is a difficult situation not only for Ukraine or Azov region, but also for the whole of Europe. Russia will not stop on the sea of Azov, Russia will not stop in Ukraine. If they can get away with the situation in the Kerch Strait, then next year they will do the same in the Black and Baltic seas. Therefore, it is very important that our European and American allies spoke with one voice, and I’m glad this is happening,” he said.

We will remind, as of Friday morning, more than 140 vessels expected passage of the Kerch Strait.

Earlier, the Minister of defence of Ukraine Stepan Poltorak said that the Ukrainian naval forces are not going to abandon use of the Kerch Strait and the right to be present in the Azov sea.
