The Ukrainian ambassador offered Turkey the option of blocking the Bosphorus and Dardanelles for Russia

31

Ukrainian politicians and diplomats continue to make anti-Russian statements and come up with suggestions on how to oppose Moscow. Among others, Ukrainian Ambassador to Turkey Vasily Bodnar shared his thoughts with the press.


According to the Ukrainian diplomatic representative, official Kiev may turn to Ankara with an initiative to block the straits connecting the Mediterranean Sea with the Black Sea for Russia. We are talking about the Bosphorus and the Dardanelles.

Bodnar:

Turkey could close these straits on the basis of the Montreux Convention. This is possible during the implementation of military operations against Ukraine, the beginning of a large-scale invasion.

According to the Ukrainian ambassador, Turkey “could have blocked the Bosporus for Russia on the basis that the war could start not only de facto, but also de jure.”

These statements were made against the backdrop of a telephone conversation between the presidents of Russia and Turkey. Erdogan, as already reported by Military Review, expressed disagreement with the Kremlin's position on the recognition of the DPR and LPR. However, at the same time, the presidents agreed to continue contacts between the countries at various levels.

Recall that the Montreux Convention regulates maritime traffic. Based on it, Turkey can "specially" regulate the passage of ships and warships through the straits in case of war, and a truly "special regime" of traffic control comes into force if Turkey itself is a belligerent or believes that it is "under the threat of imminent military danger."
Thus, the Ukrainian ambassador is trying to convey the idea of ​​an alleged "threat" for Ankara, if he offers the option of closing the Black Sea straits for Russian ships.

          Why should Turkey lose money? Passage through the straits is, as it were, free, but every passing ship or vessel must have a Turkish pilot, but he does not “wire” at all for free

      "...

      ..."
      - so the Turks already had this thought in their heads ...
      In response, Russia informed them that if such a problem
      - it will help the Turks INSTANTLY WAR to expand and deepen the straits interrupted by the Turks.
      Yes, so that at their bottom there would be enough space for the entire Turkish fleet. And on top - large ships could also pass.
      Long live freedom of navigation.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a special military operation in the Donbass. He stressed that the country's plans do not include the occupation of Ukrainian territories.



    "Circumstances require us to take decisive and immediate action. The People's Republics of Donbass turned to Russia with a request for help. In this regard, in accordance with Article 51, Part 7 of the UN Charter, with the sanction of the Federation Council and in pursuance of the friendship treaties ratified by the Federal Assembly and mutual assistance with the DPR and LPR, I have decided to conduct a special military operation,"

    Current events have added a headache to both Vucic and Erdogan
    Vucic is trying to sit on two chairs.
    On the one hand, he cannot approve the recognition of the LDNR, having Kosovo and Mitohija in his possession and demonstrating "European solidarity".
    And this is basically understandable.
    But, on the other hand, he does not want to quarrel with Russia from the word at all. So it will be difficult for a friend.
    Erdogan is more free in his choice.
    He can decide on the straits. But not according to the Kiev order, but acting in the paradigm of Turechina's membership in NATO.
    And what will be his actions, it is not easy to predict.
    The multifaceted relations between Russia and Turkey, between Erdogan and Putin are too complicated...
    With the aggravation of the situation, the question of the "return" of Constantinople to the category of "Tsargrad" is very ambiguous, because the score in the confrontation between Turkey and Russia over the past centuries is equal to 6:6.

      - but don't care - what is the score ... who and how counted it.
      For the matter is decided by gunpowder (here and now), and not at all by the one who once invented and calculated it.
      - now Erdogan WELL understands what happens when a bear waves its paw ...

      You are completely right. After all, Georgia is a geographical and political-administrative concept. And war is a kind of event. Similarly, we can say that the war with Ukraine is not a synchrophasotron.
      The truth is, what this is all about is not clear. But you are correct in your statement.

            By the way, there are not a lot of freshly registered accounts with an anti-Russian position. You can count on the fingers of one hand. Previously, under similar news, there were significantly more of them. Yes, and those that are write as little. Apparently no more comments.

    Turkey could close these straits on the basis of the Montreux Convention. This is possible during the implementation of military operations against Ukraine, the beginning of a large-scale invasion.
    And where is this mentioned in the Montreux Convention?
    Who signed this convention?
    Here is the list:
    - His Majesty the King of the Bulgarians,
    - President of the French Republic,
    - His Majesty the King of Great Britain, Ireland and the British Dominions overseas, Emperor of India,
    - His Majesty the King of Hellenes,
    - His Majesty the Emperor of Japan,
    - His Majesty the King of Romania,
    - President of the Republic of Turkey,
    - Central Executive Committee of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics,
    - His Majesty the King of Yugoslavia;
    Something I don’t see here is any current Ukraine that rejects its kinship with the Ukrainian SSR
    And now the main thing, we read this paragraph:
    Article 4
    In time of war, when Turkey is not a belligerent, merchant ships, regardless of flag and cargo, will enjoy the right of freedom of passage and navigation in the Straits, under the conditions provided for in Articles 2 and 3.
    Pilotage and use of tugboats remain optional.

    and this one:
    Article 19
    In time of war, when Turkey is not a belligerent, warships shall enjoy the right of complete freedom of passage and navigation in the Straits, under conditions identical to those specified in Articles 10-18.

      Erdogan has already clearly indicated his position in this conflict. It is not easy for him to take sides. In this he sees his gain.
      His gain is the participation of Turkish business in contracts on the territory of Ukraine, when it will be restored after denazification. And so that the Turks would normally be allowed to do this, Erdogan is now profoundly silent.

    Ukraine is like a hunted animal, throwing itself at everyone. But for the most part, no one needs it.
