The Foreign Ministry of Ukraine has expressed its protest against the Russian Federation’s introduction of a ban on navigation through the Kerch Strait in August and September 2017 due to construction of a bridge, and stresses the illegality of such actions.

“The construction of a bridge across the Kerch Strait is illegal in accordance with international law, because Ukraine… has not given its consent to such construction,” the Foreign Affairs Ministry of Ukraine said in a statement on August 11.

Kyiv also raised its concerns about the negative impact that the bridge construction may cause to the environment and navigation through the strait.
