During the capture of the Russians Ukrainian ships wounded six Ukrainian military. This is stated in the press service. Naval Forces of Ukraine (Navy).

“Russian border ships carried out openly aggressive actions against the ships of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. The border ship “Don” rammed our harbor tug, as a result of which the main engine of the ship, skin and guard rail were damaged, the life raft was lost, ”the Ukrainian Navy said.

The incident took place on November 25, when the ships of the Ukrainian Naval Forces, consisting of two small armored artillery boats “Berdyansk” and “Nikopol” and the harbor tugboat “Yani Kapu”, were carrying out a planned transition from the port of Odessa to the port of Mariupol in the Azov Sea.

“The Russians were informed in advance of their intention to make the transition in accordance with international standards in order to ensure the safety of navigation. However, contrary to the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea and the Treaty between Ukraine and the Russian Federation on cooperation in the use of the Sea of ​​Azov and the Kerch Strait, the border ships of the Russian Federation carried out openly aggressive actions against the ships of the Ukrainian Navy, ”the Ukrainian military department noted.

The command of the Naval Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine added that in this way Russia has once again “demonstrated its aggressive nature and complete disregard for the norms of international law”.

In addition, the department clarified that before passing the ships contacted the Russian side, informing them of their plans to go through the Kerch Strait, according to the Ukrainian Navy, “this information was received, but no answer was provided.”

At the same time, a few minutes after this message, Ukrainian ships recorded negotiations between Russian ports on the detection of units of the Ukrainian Navy. At the same time, the dispatchers of the ports of Kerch and the Caucasus did not respond to the calls of the ships of the Ukrainian Navy.

As a result, the Ukrainian military reported that “the naval group of the Ukrainian Navy continues to move to the port of Mariupol, despite opposition from the Russian Federation. Freedom of navigation is guaranteed by international law. Observing the norms of international maritime law, small armored artillery boats of the Ukrainian Navy "Berdyansk" and "Nikopol" and the Yani Kapu road tugboat continue to carry out their tasks at sea. "

At the same time, the Russian side sees the situation differently, calling the actions of the Ukrainian ships “provocation” and “violation of the Russian border”.

“On Sunday morning, the press service of the Crimean frontier department of the FSB announced that three ships of the Ukrainian Navy had illegally crossed the Russian border. The vessels were dangerously maneuvering and did not obey the legitimate demands of the Russian authorities, ”the article says. RIA News.

In this connection, allegedly, the “necessary measures” were taken in the form of a battering ram.

Now the Russian ships blocked the passage through the Kerch Strait in order to deter Ukrainian ships.
