EU countries have adopted a statement on the incident in the Kerch Strait

58
The EU will closely monitor developments in the Kerch Strait and is ready to act adequately in coordination with its partners, leads RIA News a statement by the head of European diplomacy Federica Mogherini, made on behalf of the EU.



At the same time, the document contains no provisions indicating the introduction of new anti-Russian sanctions.

The European Union is extremely concerned about the dangerous increase in tension in the Kerch Strait and the Sea of ​​Azov, as well as the use of force by Russia, which is unacceptable against the background of increasing militarization,
noted in the statement.

In this regard, the EU calls on the parties to “maximize restraint and immediately reduce tensions” in the region. Russia, according to the European Union, should “immediately release the captured Ukrainian ships and their crew.”

The European Community will closely monitor the situation in this region, and is determined to “act adequately” with its partners, the document says.

Earlier, the German press wrote that France and Germany oppose the expansion of anti-Russian sanctions against the background of the incident in the Kerch Strait.

Recall, Vladimir Putin called the incident in the Kerch Strait Poroshenko provocation on the eve of the elections. He also noted that the actions of the Ukrainian armored boats were led by two officers of the SBU who were aboard them. At the same time, the president stressed that the actions of the Russian border guards were legitimate and aimed at protecting the state border.

On Monday, the Verkhovna Rada approved Poroshenko’s decree on the imposition of martial law in ten Ukrainian regions for a period of 30 days.

The incident occurred on November 25. Three Ukrainian vessels (two armored boats and a tugboat), violating the state border of the Russian Federation, headed for the Kerch Strait. The ships maneuvered dangerously and did not comply with the requirements of the Russian border guards. As a result, they were all detained along with the crews. Three Ukrainian sailors were injured, they received medical assistance. The FSB opened a criminal case on the illegal crossing of the state border.

    Well, the norms of Russian law, and the opinion of the Kerch court, should immediately bring the violators to justice, and Ukrainian ships should be confiscated.

      Why did the Ukrainians violate? I honestly did not understand, because the Sea of ​​Azov in joint use by Ukrainians seems to be guaranteed free passage through the Kerch Strait? Our border guards do not have the right to inspect Ukrainian vessels, if they do not violate anything, and if the Ukrainian vessel is stopped and inspected, then there should be a written explanation of the reasons for the inspection, and not just because they wanted and stopped. Ukrainian military courts under their flag should be allowed to pass without inspection, as well as through the Bosphorus and other canals and straits. I don’t understand what is the chip and the cause of the conflict?

          This is a little taut with your understanding. There is an order that must be followed. In the first case, this order was observed; there were no problems with the passage. This time they did not intentionally comply. Rowed. Is it clear now? Or again not?

                There is one nuance that the Russian side does not take into account - the countries of the world did not recognize Crimea as Russian, the official international status of Crimea is "the territory of Ukraine temporarily occupied by Russia" .... Thus, the Ukrainian version of "border violations looks like this" - "neither one country in the world does not recognize this border. Therefore, according to international maritime law, armored boats and a tug were in Ukrainian waters. Russia's actions can be called in one word - “piracy.” Therefore, according to international law, Ukrainians are right. No?

                  The ships of the Navy violated the border on the site, which was always the border of the Russian Federation and was determined as such, even before the annexation of Crimea to Russia. Moreover, they tried to get into the area where access was temporarily restricted, about which they were informed. Yes, one disobedience to the legitimate requirements of the border ship is enough to justify military action.

    This begs a comparison with the process of the last Maidan. They also belittled Yanukovych not to touch "students with a chupryna", not to use force. What came out of this we all have been observing for the 5th year. Condemn the detainees and put them far away, where it is colder. The boats should be confiscated and transferred to the DPR. soldier

    Concerning, EU calls side tomaximum restraint and immediate reduction of tension" in the region.

    Actually, in Russia, an enviable restraint is shown in relation to European tension. This European arrogance can affect Russian friendliness. It is Europe that needs to reduce tension, or else you can get smacked so that you can’t wash yourself off forever.
    Russia, in the opinion of the European Union, should “immediately release the captured Ukrainian ships and their crew”

    How long can one say that Russia should not do anything to the European Union and is not even obliged to follow their recommendations. And there is someone to deal with the courts. We haven’t received the Russian "Nord" back yet ... So, bargaining is not appropriate here.

    Quote: "... Russia, in the opinion of the European Union, must" immediately release the captured Ukrainian ships and their crew "
    But hu-hu not ho-ho, grandmother ("Until the third cocks" by V.M. Shukshin)
    The seized weapons and vessels illegally entered the territory of the Russian Federation, crews on kitsch, vessels in trophies!
    Aufviderzeien!
    In the end, the Black Sea Fleet also needs targets for combat firing.

    This is with a fright? Even if Crimea were part of Ukraine, their trick would still violate the state border of Russia.
    So they will judge, and Ukrainian rubbish will be towed to the landfill of the Sumerian ships in the Crimea.

    By the way, which is interesting. In the methodology for the commander, the passage was written to be towed. If they had applied in a timely manner, then they could indeed have carried out boats. But it seems that the good-natured mackerel leapfrogged and he decided to break through his tactics of wolf packs. But he forgot that hunting for wolves is allowed all year round, and even without licenses.

    Well i.e. there is no adequate understanding. Another example of hypocrisy and verbiage.

    I read in the internet:
    "Here is Kerch, dry land
    On the pier is an autosack
    "We got it!" - said the Fable
    "Looks like!" - answered Makryak
    "I should wash myself in warm water
    And fall asleep in a hammock! "
    Dreaming Captain Nebylitsa
    "Citizenship would be!" - echoed Makryak ...
