Ukrainian ships do not carry materials for Kerch Strait Bridge construction – ministry

The Infrastructure Ministry has denied reports that Ukrainian ships carry domestic materials to annexed Crimea for the construction of the Kerch Strait Bridge and ore for the plants of Dmytro Firtash.

“Ships from the Ukrainian ports sail in line with the acting legislation, this means they do not enter the ports of temporary occupied Crimea,” the Infrastructure Ministry told Ukrinform.

The ministry stressed that the observance of this regulation is being monitored by the prosecutor’s office, the Security Service of Ukraine and the State Border Service. And in case of violations - relevant measures are applied, the ministry added.

Earlier, former Ukraine’s government commissioner for the European Court of Human Rights Borys Babin stated that Ukrainian ships delivered to the annexed Crimea domestic materials for the construction of the Kerch Strait Bridge and ore for the plants of Firtash.
