The Russian Federation representatives once again deny the fact of the Crimea occupation. They regard the illegal "referendum" as a process of "reuniting Crimea and Russia," said the representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova, the Vedomosti publication reports.
According to her, Ukraine illegally lays claim to Crimea filing a lawsuit to the Arbitration Court against the violation of the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea. Russia fulfills its obligations under the International treaty, considering Crimea the Russian territory.
“Due to reuniting of Crimea with Russia, Ukraine is no longer a coastal State in respect of maritime areas adjacent to Crimea, and therefore has no rights for them,” Zakharova stated.
She went on saying that, the Russian government did not receive any the notice of appeal from the Court of Arbitration.
The Ukrainian President instructed the Head of the Ukrainian MFA to prepare the documents for an appeal to the Arbitration Court against Russia’s violation of the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea. According to Poroshenko, Russia is brazenly stealing the resources of the Ukrainian waters. Moreover, Kerch bridge construction damages the ecology of the Black and Azov Seas.
