The secretary of the National Security and Defense Council says that with the help of C-400 Triumph, Russia “is capable of striking airplanes flying over Ukraine.
They can shoot down any aircraft flying over the central part of Ukraine. This is a very serious danger to us.
Turchinov also spoke about what he considers the Crimean Bridge to be a “military object,” since Russia “had the opportunity to transfer military equipment and personnel to the Crimea and back.”
According to the Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine, he also considers the strengthening of the Russian naval component on the Sea of Azov a danger.
The difficulty also lies in the fact that immediately after the conflict around the island of Tuzla, Ukraine, under pressure from Russia, signed an agreement according to which the Sea of Azov is defined as the inland sea of two states. And this status does not allow to clearly fix the line of the sea border and makes it possible to intensify provocations on the part of the Russian Federation.
And the seizure by the Ukrainian border guards of the Russian vessel "Nord" is whose provocation? Is Russia too? ..
