The Russian Foreign Ministry responded to the appeal of Ukraine to tribunal


Sergey Lavrov's department considers that the Ukrainian side "arrives unfairly again". The authorities of Ukraine use a situation around hijacking of the Ukrainian ships by the Russian military in the Kerch Strait in the internal political purposes. It is said in the statement the Russian Foreign Ministry published on Tuesday, April 16 in connection with the appeal of Ukraine to the International Tribunal for maritime law (ITLOS) because of this incident. "The Ukrainian side arrives unfairly again, trying to use this situation which arose owing to illegal actions of the Ukrainian ships in the internal political purposes", – said in Sergey Lavrov's department. In the Russian Foreign Ministry claim that "remain open to contacts in a bilateral format on the questions connected with this incident what Ukraine was officially informed by notes on". At the same time in Moscow recognize that "The International Tribunal for maritime law does not possess jurisdiction for consideration of the Kerch incident". Besides, the Russian Foreign Ministry "does not see in the temporary measures of an element of an urgent need requested by Ukraine that it is an indispensable condition of their instruction". "Procedural laws of the Ukrainian seamen are strictly observed, they use services of lawyers, receive medical care. The fact that Ukraine within nearly five months did not hurry with the appeal to tribunal also demonstrates lack of urgency", – noted in the Russian Foreign Ministry. Before April 16 it became known that Ukraine appealed to the International Tribunal for maritime law to enter measures against Russia and with the requirement to release three ships and 24 servicemen who were captured at the Kerch Strait. Let's remind, on November 25, 2018 the Russian special troops seized two Ukrainian boats Berdyansk and Nikopol and Yana Kapu's tow. 24 Ukrainian seamen were arrested on a charge of "illegal crossing of border of the Russian Federation", three from them were wounded. All captured seamen said to the investigation that they are prisoners of war. News from the Correspondent.netv of Telegram. Subscribe for our https://t.me/korrespondentnet channel
