Poroshenko explained why the military ships of Ukraine sent across the Kerch Strait
President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said that the Ukrainian military ships were sent from Odessa to Mariupol through the Kerch Strait, because shipping them by land would have meant the recognition of the “Russian occupation” and Russian rights to the Strait.
“And someone said that we had to use other ways to transport by land warships, what it means, dear politicians? To offer to give the Strait of Kerch to the Russians? To recognize the illegal status of the occupation?” — said Poroshenko during the forum in Kiev (quoted by UNN).

According to Petro Poroshenko, he “was forced to use preventive measures and to impose martial law in 10 regions of the country.” “It is introduced only to extend the capabilities of the Armed forces and the sector of defense and security, including the National guard, to counteract growing threats”, — assured the Ukrainian President.
25 Nov in the Kerch Strait, the Russian border guards with weapons detained three ships of the Ukrainian Navy bound for the sea of Azov. Three Ukrainian sailors were injured. Later the crews were arrested by the court in Simferopol for two months.
30 Nov Ukraine forbade entrance on the territory of the Russian men aged from 16 to 60 years. The ban was introduced under martial law declared in Ukraine after the incident.
