Russian self-elevating drilling offshore platforms, fixed platforms and supply vessels have been recorded in Ukrainian maritime economic zone.

This is reported by the press service of the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine.

"The State Border Guard Service of Ukraine continues to carry out the tasks aimed at strengthening the protection of the state border and protection of the interests of Ukraine in its exclusive (maritime) economic zone. When monitoring the sea surface from air, the employees of the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine have registered Russian self-elevating drilling offshore platforms, fixed platforms and supply vessels in Odesa and Holitsyne gas fields," the report says.

As noted, the presence of vessels under the Russian flag on the territory of the gas fields may indicate the continuation of illegal exploration and production of natural resources, as well as the operation of facilities and constructions for commercial purposes without the permission of the relevant Ukrainian authorities.
