Employees of the Security Service of Ukraine noted a new provocation in the Kerch Strait, capturing the Russian tanker NEYMA.
The capture operation was carried out jointly with the Military Prosecutor’s Office. At the same time, the Ukrainian special services openly declare that today’s incident is a revenge for the actions of the Russian border guards who, on November 25 last year, detained the Navy’s ships together with the crew who were trying to break through the Russian border.
The Security Service of Ukraine reminded that exactly the tanker “NEYMA” blocked the way for the Ukrainian warship during the first Kerch provocation. The security forces had already searched the hijacked ship, seized documentation and recordings of radio communications, and also began to interrogate sailors. Meanwhile, Kiev is trying to legalize a seizure through court, explaining it by “arresting” of physical evidence.
