The security service of Ukraine has banned the entry of members of crews of foreign ships, without permission from Kiev to enter the ports of the Crimea, reported on the Agency’s website.
“In connection with violation of order of entry in the temporarily occupied territory of Ukraine and exit from it such aliens will not be able to visit Ukraine in the next three years, including in the crews of other ships”, — stated in the message.
In SBU noted that “to get into the occupied territory is possible only with the mainland of Ukraine in the procedure established by law”.
Ukrainian legislation currently recognizes the Crimea and Sevastopol temporarily occupied territory. The addition of these actors to Russia, Kiev is not recognized.
In turn, the Russian side indicates that the Crimea and Sevastopol became part of Russia following a referendum among the inhabitants of the region. Speaking at the weekend at a conference in Munich, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said that the fate of Crimea is not negotiable.
