Poroshenko initiates a meeting of the national security Council

The President believes the situation in the Azov sea is totally unacceptable. Russia’s actions, in his opinion, should not remain without punishment, and the international reaction.

The situation in the Azov sea will consider at a meeting of the national security Council and defense of Ukraine. President Petro Poroshenko said that he has already given orders for the preparation of a meeting. He said this on Tuesday, August 28, speaking at a meeting with heads of foreign diplomatic institutions of Ukraine, UKRINFORM reported.

“I’m not going to put up with it and firmly convinced that the situation now is absolutely unacceptable. Instructed to prepare the relevant meeting of the Council of national security and defence on this matter and ask the Ministry of foreign Affairs as soon as possible to make suggestions for illegal and treacherous actions of Moscow in the region must not and will not go unpunished. Moreover, without an appropriate international response. And here I need your help,” – said Poroshenko.

As you know, the agreement between Ukraine and the Russian Federation on cooperation in using the Azov sea and the Kerch Strait signed in 2003. The last time Russia blocks the passage of foreign vessels during the passage in the Kerch Strait and as of August 21, have arrested more than 150 foreign vessels, which went to Ukrainian ports on the Azov sea.

Earlier Ukraine was excluded denunciation of the Treaty with Russia on the Azov sea, as it is it would allow Russia to declare a territorial dispute.

We will remind, in July, President Petro Poroshenko instructed the Minister of defense, the chief of the General staff and high command of the Navy to take measures to stop Russian provocations against blocking entry of ships in Ukrainian ports in the sea of Azov.
