Russia blocks Ukrainian Azov Sea ports, minister

KIEV – Two of the Ukrainian Azov Sea ports, Mariupol and Berdyansk, are known to be under blockade by Russia as vessels are being barred from entering as well as leaving, Infrastructure minister of Ukraine, Volodymyr Omelyan, told on Thursday.

A total of 35 vessels have been barred from carrying out usual operations and only vessels that are moving toward Russian ports on the Azov Sea are allowed entry, he told on Facebook.

“The goal is quite simple – by placing a blockade over the Ukrainian ports on the Azov Sea, Russia is hoping to drive Ukraine out of our own territory – territory which is ours in accordance will all known international laws,” he told.

Omelyan said that 18 vessels were actually awaiting entry into the Azov Sea, which included four to Berdyansk and 14 to Mariupol. Not only that, but there is also a nine vessel line to leave the Azov Sea and eight other vessels that are standing by close to the port berths.

As of now, Grain and steel is dominating the Azov ports shipments.

Russia has seized three navy ships from Ukraine and their crews on Sunday close to the Crimean peninsula, which Moscow took possession of in 2014, over what it told was their illegal entry into the Russian waters – a charge Ukraine strongly disapproves.

The seizure of the navy vessels drove high tensions since the year 2015, when Moscow-backed rebels who rose against the Kiev government in the region of eastern Donbass, sparking a war that is known to have killed tens of thousands.
