Ukraine mulls sea blockade of Crimea

Ukraine will detain all the ships travelling to and out of Crimea without Kiev’s consent, Ukrainian Border Service Spokesman Oleg Slobodyan said on Wednesday, commenting on the detention of Russia’s Nord vessel, assigned to the port of Kerch. This was reported by TASS News Agency on Wednesday.

"Ukraine’s position is unequivocal, it considers Crimea to be an occupied part of its territory so law enforcement agencies will promptly respond to violations committed by those travelling in and out of Crimea," Slobodyan said.

He stressed that Ukraine’s capabilities "are enough to respond to the current threats."
