Russia has confirmed the closure of part of the Black Sea for certain ships and ships

50

The information that Russia is closing part of the Black Sea for foreign warships and other state vessels of foreign countries has found its confirmation. This is reported by the bulletin of the Department of Navigation and Oceanography of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.


We are talking about the closure of three areas in the Black Sea from 9 pm Saturday, April 24. At the same time, a special regime for certain ships and ships in these areas will last until the end of October 2021.

It is especially emphasized that all statements about the alleged closure of the Kerch Strait by Russia for commercial ships have no real basis. It is noted that the current regime of restrictions will in no way affect the commercial traffic of ships through the Kerch Strait in both directions.

Russia explains that three sections of the Black Sea water area, which are closed to foreign military (and other state) ships and ships, are not in international waters, but inside the territorial waters of the Russian Federation.

It is noteworthy how the West reacts to the decision of the Russian Defense Ministry. Thus, Washington said that such bans on shipping by Russia are an "unprovoked escalation." In this regard, it would be worth asking the United States: how often do they allow foreign warships to move in any zones of their own territorial waters?

Meanwhile, the European Union called on Russia to "reverse the discriminatory decision." At the same time, in the West, no one can really explain what exactly its discriminatory nature is. Or were the ships of the EU and NATO countries going to navigate the territorial waters of Russia, proceeding from their own discretion? ..

    Or maybe the Yankees put Altov's monologue, which comrade Slava aka Sobakin reminded us just now: "After a couple of kilometers there will be a sign to hang, 'no turning.' There is a cliff, but you can go there."
    A rocket will hit the head and you won't show the incident. So listen to comrade Shoigu, he will not advise bad

      As if you didn’t know, the Americans have introduced a precedent in international law: the “right of exclusivity,” according to which they use international maritime law at their own discretion.
      There is an anecdote, in my opinion, a European one about the American AUG and the Spanish lighthouse on an island in the Atlantic. yes

        - The verdict, as the lawyers say is final, is not subject to appeal. I leave control over compliance with the decisions made to ...
        - Let's do it, Vladimir, Vladimirovich! - assured President Shoigu.
        - Thank you, Sergey Kuzhugetovich. And if someone starts to resist ...
        - Do not start, be calm. I'll put them on the counter right away.
        - What is a "counter"? - the Italian prime minister turned to Merkel, - Angela, do you know what this is?
        - I know, - Merkel smiled, - an ordinary Russian counter: three, two, one ... start!

    Under the USSR! In the middle of Barentsukha, there is an area of ​​international waters that is not covered by the economic zone of Russia. So when the west became impudent, this area was constantly closed by the Northern Fleet, from western fishermen. Like we shoot there with anything, who did not hide (did not fade, after warnings) we are not to blame. And no one blathers "from the branches." And the Sea of ​​Okhotsk is completely closed, Russia has achieved its goal.

    I think maybe it is our decision that at the same time prepares "partners" for the transition to the stage of "acceptance" in relation to Russia's rights to an exclusive economic zone in the part of the NSR? And what would our "probable" friends "" open their mouths less on the topic of "internationality" of the water area?

    In fact, this solution makes little difference in the context of any commercial transport. This is nothing more than the geopolitical trolling of our sworn partners. Exactly with the same success you can make .. well, let's say the Moscow region is closed for the movement of any military NATO countries (even if they are not armed and work in a diplomatic mission or something else). smile

    As usual, they howled in unison, not wanting to recognize the rights of Russia to carry out any actions in their waters. The main thing is that Russia has banned (limited) something, which means that it is escalating the situation by not allowing other people's ships to roam in separate areas of its waters. It is strange that Australia is still keeping quiet, otherwise the Australian ship will urgently need to be there.

    In addition to the water space of the territorial zone of the Russian Federation, also close the air space. And at the slightest attempt by NATO members to approach niche territories, to “nightmare” them so that they not only scream with fear, but also catapult.
