Russian President Vladimir Putin made his first comment on the seizure of Ukrainian sailors by Russian security forces. On the military situation and the incident in the Kerch Strait Putin said at the forum “Russia calling!”.
Putin cynically said that Russian border guards acted “within the law”.
“And how to act guards? Warships intruded into the territorial waters of the Russian Federation and do not answer, and it is unclear what they intend to do. How should they act? If they had acted differently, all of them should be prosecuted. But they fulfilled their duty, an order, in fact, they have performed their legitimate function to protect the territorial integrity of the Russian Federation”.
Putin also said that incident is a “clear provocation”.
“Clear signs prepared in advance provocation, intended to then use this as a pretext to impose martial law in the country. Nothing to do with attempts to normalize relations between Russia and Ukraine, it has not. This aggravation game”
In addition, Putin brazenly said that the Ukrainian sailors broke the law.
“I did not respond at all to requests of our border service. Not answering the queries of our border guards started to move straight to the bridge. Silent, do not answer.”
We recall the morning of November 25, the Military-naval forces of VSU reported that the boundary ships of Russia “have made aggressive actions against the ships of naval forces of Ukraine”.
In particular, the Russian boundary ship “the don” made a battering RAM of the Ukrainian Harbor tugs.
“Border Department of the FSB in Crimea,” said the three ships of naval forces of Ukraine crossed the state border of Russia. Later, the Russians banned the passage of civilian vessels through the Kerch Strait.
Recall, trump was urgently called Putin on the Mat, you know where and when.
As reported Znaia in connection with the military situation in Ukraine has abolished the important football ceremony.
Also Znayu wrote, the government jeopardized the biggest feeder of the economy.
