The MP also spoke about the right of States to strengthen its borders, especially on problem areas. “We now have several such plots — admingranitsa with the temporarily occupied Crimea, the Azov coast from Genichesk to Mariupol.

Tension between Moscow and Kiev to the Azov sea began to grow after the annexation of Crimea to Russia and increased at the completion of construction of Crimean bridge across the Kerch Strait. Ukraine fears that Russia will block the country access to the sea. The border guards of both countries several times detained and arrested belong to each other court in this area.
