Omeljan stressed that the Ministry of Infrastructure is working with allies in the anti-Russian coalition on the return of the occupied territories, the release of the captured sailors and ships, the restoration of worldwide law and the cessation of the economic blockade of Azov region of Ukraine.
Commercial ships were moving through the Kerch Strait linking the Sea of Azov with the Black Sea, Infrastructure Minister Volodymyr Omelyan said.
The possible move comes in response to a naval incident in the Kerch Strait on November 25 when three Ukrainian Navy ships entered Russian territorial waters in violation of global law.
In a statement by the Embassy of Ukraine in Nigeria, Mykola Yaremchuk, first secretary of the Embassy of Ukraine said the attack on the ships was carried out during a sea crossing from the port of Odessa to the port of Mariupol, in accordance with the provisions of all effective multilateral and bilateral worldwide treaties and navigation rules.
The vessels were attempting to pass through the Kerch Strait, which is located between Russia's mainland and the Crimean Peninsula that Russian Federation annexed from Ukraine in 2014.
The passage at the start of this month of a small number of ships doesn't resolve the issue, Ukraine's Sea Ports Administration said Tuesday.
The worldwide community views the annexation as illegal and the election Russian Federation uses to justify it as illegitimate. However, since the 2014 annexation, and the completion of the Kerch bridge earlier this year, Russian Federation has slowly restricted access for Ukrainian ships.
