Полторак объяснил, почему так важно пройти по Керченскому проливу

Ukraine will not refuse the passage of their vessels through the Kerch Strait, as it is Ukrainian territory.

This was stated by Minister of defense Stepan Poltorak, reports RBC-Ukraine.

“Because of the provocation of the Russian Federation, Ukraine failed to cross the Straits. If we don’t pass on the Kerch Strait, it will mean that we refuse from its territory,” he said.

The Minister also added that no one doubts that part of the Azov sea – Ukrainian territory and Ukraine has the right to pass.
