The construction of a bridge across the Kerch Strait interfere with freedom of navigation in the Azov sea and is therefore a problem.
NATO closely monitors Russian provocations in the sea of Azov and refers to them only as to violations of the Russian Federation against Ukraine.
“I think there are big problems in freedom of navigation in the Azov sea due to illegal construction of the Kerch bridge, and all the allies consider it illegal, this is a serious problem,” he told journalists in Brussels on 3 October.
This problem only supplemented other serious violations of the Kremlin annexed Crimea, the diplomat added.
In particular, he reminded about the situation with human rights in the occupied Peninsula.
“Even in the occupied territories in accordance with international standards, liability is established. And clearly shows that Russia will not bear such responsibility,” he said.
We will remind that on the background of the blocking of navigation on the Azov, a number of scientists and experts urged the Ukrainian government to terminate the Agreement between Ukraine and the Russian Federation on cooperation in using the Azov sea and the Kerch Strait.
At the same time, President Petro Poroshenko said about the intention of Russia to occupy the sea of Azov.
