Ukrainian Foreign Ministry accused Russia of "creeping annexation"

“The Sea of ​​Azov is now an easy target for Russia. After the illegal annexation of Crimea and the establishment of control over the Kerch Strait, Russia may make a creeping annexation of the Sea of ​​Azov. And it is constantly strengthening its military presence there and blocking trade routes”, – Kuleba said.

The Crimean peninsula joined Russia in a referendum held there in the spring of 2014 following a coup d’etat in Ukraine. Almost 97% of Crimean voters voted for reunification with Russia, but Ukraine continues to consider the peninsula “its own, but temporarily occupied territory”.
