After monitoring of the situation on the maritime boundary, the aviation of the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine has confirmed the location of self-elevating and stationary drilling platforms, as well as supply vessels in Odesa and Golitsyn gas fields with the Russian Federation flags being hoisted on both facilities, according to the press service of the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine. 

“The presence of supply vessels under the flag of the Russian Federation within the fields may indicate a continuation of the illegal exploration and exploitation of natural resources, as well as the operation of facilities and constructions for commercial purposes without the permission of the competent authorities of Ukraine,” says a statement.

The competent Ukrainian authorities and Ministries have already been informed of the revealed infringements.
