Putin approves decree allowing Russian military to block Kerch Strait

In a decree published on the Kremlin’s website, Russian President Vladimir Putin has allowed the Russian military to block the territories and waters around protected facilities to stop attempts of illegal infiltration.

The explanatory note to the document says that the Russian National Guard protects the waters of the Kerch Strait, the bridge over it and the water area around the Russian power grid link with Crimea.

In addition, according to Putin’s decree, the military can cordon these areas during attempts of “illegal crossing and infiltration” into the surrounding water area and attempts to leave it.

On June 23, the Russian Defense Ministry said that the Russian military allegedly fired warning shots on the British destroyer HMS Defender, which entered the “Russian territorial waters” in the Black Sea.

British authorities said the destroyer made a peaceful passage through Ukraine’s territorial waters in accordance with international law and there were no warning shots fired.

The Daily Telegraph reported that the decision to allow HMS Defender to pass near Crimea was made by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

    This is a criminal act. But, nothing else can be expected from a crime syndicate and especially one filled with girly crybabies like the russia (spelled with a lower case “r” on purpose).

    • I always spell putler, putlerstan and putinazis that way too. Ditto hitler/stalin. In fact the vile putler shill Peter Hitchens singled me out for criticism for my deliberate provocation. He said ‘you have an extraordinary habit of avoiding capitalization of the names of people you don’t like’. I said ‘that’s right Peter, you should stop groveling to the tiny poisoner. Which you do by avoiding his name altogether; referring to ‘Russia’ when you actually mean ‘putin’.

        I certainly would like to have a word with peter hitchens. Being a pew-tin ass-spelunker, I’d have lots to say to him about his filthy way of life.
