War Provocations: Ukraine Plans To Sail Warships Through Kerch Strait, With OSCE, NATO Representatives On Board

Ukraine is preparing for another war provocation in the Kerch Strait area in an attempt to instigate miliary tensions in the region.

On December 19th, Oleksandr Turchynov, Ukrainian Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council said that the Ukrainian Navy is planning to send ships to pass through the Kerch Strait, with officials from the OSCE and other international organizations on board.

“We are systematically working on strengthening the coastal defense of the Black and Azov seas. To this end, new and upgraded missile systems will be involved. This will allow us not only to effectively counteract any landing operations but also to destroy any ship threatening our country at a 300 km distance even when it is located at the home port, – he pointed out. – We must prove to the whole world that Ukraine has not lost its positions in the Sea of Azov and that this is a sea where international law is in force, and both Ukrainian and foreign ships can stay there,” Turchynov said in an interview with BBC Ukraine.

Furthermore, he claimed that the Ukrainian warships would continue to pass through the Kerch Strait.

“This is a matter of principle for us. If we stop and yield, Russia will actually fulfill its task of seizing the Sea of Azov and present new self-defined sea borders in the Black Sea to the world, de facto legalizing the occupation of the Crimea.”

He also said that international representatives from the OSCE and other organizations had been invited to take part in the passage from the Ukrainian Black Sea ports to the Ukrainian ports on the Sea of Azov coast.

“We will invite representatives of the OSCE and other international organizations to visit our ships in order to prove to the whole world that Ukraine and its sailors do not violate any laws and international rules. We have no alternative to such actions.”

When Turchynov was asked what would happen if Russia would for some reason detain the international representatives from the OSCE and possibly NATO, Turchynov claimed that Russia would be wary of the international community’s focus on this issue and not “risk acting aggressively.”

But, “if the Kerch Strait incident is left unattended, if the Ukrainian sailors are not immediately released, then the civilized world will in fact recognize that Russia has the right to any aggression, to any changes in borders it wishes, and will not bear responsibility for any of it!”

Then he continued by saying:

“Let’s be honest; the Russian Federation was condemned not punished. After such an act of aggression, the sanctions against Russia should be strengthened significantly, and appropriate measures should be taken against the Russian fleet around the world, otherwise the consequences would be more bloody and dangerous, not only for Ukraine, but for other countries.”

He was also asked regarding the imposition of martial law. Turchynov said that when the Ukrainian ships were seized and there were injuries, that was unwarranted aggression and that required a response.

Russia has maintained that it does not wish for and will not initiate a military escalation with Ukraine and there is no evidence to back-up any of the Kiev government’s claims of the allegedly Russian preparations for a full-scale invasion. However, Moscow will be forced to respond if the Kiev government stage another provocation near the Kerch Strait. There are no doubts that the Kiev government understands this well and is intentionally working to escalate the situation in the region.

    So this time the Ukraine boats will not be running around like a pack of wild dogs?

    I bet that nato and obse are fighting for place on those ukro boars that are about to breach Russian territorial waters. What a nice Christmas adventure proposal – “Doscover the mistery of Russian jail”. What the f$ck they are smoking in Ukraine? “Demanding Turkey to close Bosphorus for Russian ships”. Now inviting nato/obse to dodge an AK630 bullit?
    No wonder this Turchinsky nick name is bloody pastor.

      If they would smoke “green-green-grass-of-home”, they would spread love-love-love. But they are on xanax for soooo long, that their brain has changed into lunatic-aggresive ones. “Hey you whitees hide behind darkees”.

      The Jew Turchynove should offer to stand at the front of a Uki boat to show his bravery.
      The bravery he displayed when he shit his pants when he was sightseeing at the front in 2014 and a mortar bomb landed nearby.

      His car beat the land speed record fleeing back to Kiev :)

    I know its wrong to laugh at the misfortune of others. but I just cannot help myself.
    With No funding and almost zero public support within Ukraine and abraud this plan is looks like a Cry for Help… I just cant help myself.. Its wrong but Im almost giddy with laughter of this Sakashvili wanabe Ukrainian Leader…
    So here is how I see it going down. The ships Sail under the Bridge and the Russians Will get a chance to Show off their Millitary might, escorting the ever loving hahaha… 100% chance the Russians will pay those Ukrainian Sailors to Openly defect and say things… This Ukrainian leader…. lol

  • Mistaron

    Go on. Do it! Please, do it in exactly the same way as you just recently did! I dare you, you jumped-up little Nazi! Do it!
    Of course, they won’t. Not with UN and OSCE on board. The whole exercise will have to proceed under the treaty rules as it will be directly under the eyes of the international community. Still, one has to wonder what the thinking behind this is, considering they will have to wait in line for the pilots just like the other ships waiting to traverse the straits, or are they really planning to face-off the Russians again?
    It makes you wonder who is in fact putting these fools up to this kind of crap.

    • FlorianGeyer

      Bigger fools in the US and UK I suspect.

  • Xoli

    Russia is a superpower and need no ones permission to protect itself and protect its borders and sovereignty.If Ukraine and puppets Trump,Macroni,May and Merkel think that putting any observers on provocation warship and Enter Russian territory then their must be ready to escape bullets.This tactic were used in Syrian by Turkey, USA,France ,Germany and British just to move terrorists in and around government held territory.

  • EmilyEnso

    So now we know why they are pulling out of Syria.
    As many of us guessed the Ukraine is now the start of WW3.
    The US proxies in Syria washed up.
    So now the Ukrainian Nazis are to be armed and financed to start a war.
    A war that the USA cannot win and which will destoy the planet.
    Exactly the sort of logical and nihilistic thinking we can expect from the neo con warmongers and their home countries
    tts time for yellow jackets to take these psychos down..

    • Andrei

      Hello there America has never been a winner in any war they just know how to start and destroy civilization .,nothing else money money money money

      • EmilyEnso

        has never been a winner in any war

        Now that is unfair.
        Even though they left their maps behind and had to raid the tourist bureaus I have it on the best authority that the USA definitely won in Granada.
        All 14 or so defenders were dealt with quickly and efficiently.
        Or so I hear.

      • FlorianGeyer

        In the next war though the American factories and cities will be laid waste. There is no profit there as there was after WW1 and WW2.

  • verner

    just anchor a tanker under the bridge and the entrance is closed.

    Well I hope these Ukrainian sailors and NATO representatives enjoy being detained because that’s what will happen :) And if Western puppet nazi ukrainians launch a provocation, DNR/LNR on standby to retaliate as necessary to defend themselves. good luck have fun.

  • VeeNarian (Yerevan)

    Turchynov, the ATO war criminal, should realise that the US/EU/NATO gangsters are not prepared to die for the Banderised Ukrainian parasites infecting Kiev. Russia will protect its territory or it will cease to exist.

  • Xoli

    No military warships through Russian strait even if their carry USA UN delegation.Ukraine warship will not be allowed until their make peace with Russia.Russia can pullout from UNSC meetings if hostile country comes with UN spy and double face members on Ukraine warships.Russian waships will block Ukraine warship and no one will do anything because sanctions are already the.No peace and contact with Russia means one second away from serious war at any place at anytime.Military on full alert can respond to any wrong intruders move just as Syria respond and hit wrong target.Any country any human close to a war zone is a target just as riots re action by special Police.

  • dutchnational

    Ukraine has, by treaty between Russia and Ukraine from 2003 all rights to have ships sail to their naval port within their own country on the shores of the Azov sea.

    Just like Russia has a right to enter the Black Sea through the Bosporus.

    The russian attack was a clear violation of a treaty, just like the attack on Crimea was a clear attack on the Ukraine. Russia will be punished at some time or place, as it shoukd be.
