FSB: Ukrainian warship is moving towards the Kerch Strait, does not comply with demands to change course

The ship “Donbass” of the Ukrainian Navy is moving towards the Kerch Strait and does not comply with the requirement to change course. RIA Novosti writes about this with reference to the Federal Security Service (FSB).

According to the intelligence service, on the morning of December 9, the ship left the port of Mariupol and headed towards the Kerch Strait. At the same time, Ukraine did not submit applications for the passage of the strait.

The coast guard of the FSB border service warned the ship about the need to submit an application. “We have received an answer that there are no plans to follow through the Kerch Strait,” the Russian secret service said.

“At present, Donbass is located at a distance of 18 nautical miles to the Kerch Strait, it does not fulfill the requirement to change the course. These actions pose a threat to the safety of navigation, ”the FSB said.

  1. Ukraine SHOULD be doing this. Though it’s only a pressuring move, saber rattling is more likely to have its desired effect if the sabers are pulled out of their sheaths. Pushing an enemy like Russia to back off need not have bloodshed if they back off, but does need more force than just words.
