Moscow is trying to destabilize Ukraine, said in Washington.

The U.S. Department of state Thursday, August 30, urged Russia to stop “prosecution for international navigation” in the sea of Azov and the Kerch Strait, accusing Moscow of trying to destabilize Ukraine.

This was stated by press-Secretary of Department Heather Nauert, reports Reuters.

“Russia’s actions preventing marine transit, are another example of its ongoing campaign to undermine and destabilize the Ukraine and its disregard of international norms,” she said.

In recent weeks Russia has not allowed at least 16 commercial ships to sail to the ports of Ukraine, said Neuert.
