Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemns the use of force at the Kerch Strait

 

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic is highly concerned about the escalation of  tensions around the illegally annexed Crimea and condemns the use of force against Ukraine’s naval forces.

We consider the blockade of free navigation via Kerch Strait by the Russian Federation as a gross violation of the international law.

The Czech Republic calls for the maintenance of free access into the Azov sea, respect for the territorial intergrity and sovereignty of Ukraine, as well as for the immediate release of detained seamen and vessels. We encourage both sides to be restrained.
