Russian invaders threatened to use weapons against the Britta K, a foreign civilian vessel that transited Ukraine's territorial waters near Zmiinyi (Snake) Island.

According to Ukrinform, the press service of the Ukrainian Navy reported this on Facebook.

"On May 21, the Britta K, a civilian ship flying the flag of the Republic of Togo, while transiting the Ukrainian territorial waters near Zmiinyi Island, received a signal from the Russians demanding that it leave the territorial waters of Russia, otherwise, weapons will be used," the statement said.

According to the Ukrainian Navy, this confirms Russia's attempts to "illegally appropriate Ukrainian territory, even without the so-called 'pseudo-referendums.' This was last done by Hitler during World War II."

"But we will not give away our territories. The invaders will definitely follow their warship," the Ukrainian Navy said.
