BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:20 P.M.) – Jet aircraft Sukhoi Su-25 Grach began patrolling the area above the Kerch Strait in the Black Sea on Sunday.
Kamov KA-52 helicopters were also witnessed in the area.
According to an FSB statement, “This morning, at around 7:00 AM MSK [04:00 GMT], three vessels of the Ukrainian Naval Forces have breached articles 19 and 21 of the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, which determines coastal states’ right to ensure security at sea.”
According to Ukrainian authorities, their vessels had a right to pass freely over the Kerch Strait based on international law.
The Command of the Naval Forces of Ukraine put the blame on the Russian side for “its aggressive essence.”
