The Ukrainian Security Service (SBU) announced on July 25 that it had detained Russia’s Nika Spirit (Neyma) tanker at the port of Izmail. The SBU claimed that the tanker was used to block the movement of Ukrainian Navy ships during the Kerch Strait incident.

“The Ukrainian Security Service and Military Prosecutor’s Office have detained Russia’s Neyma tanker that blocked the movement of Ukrainian ships in the Kerch Strait,” the statement reads. “A pre-trial investigation made it clear that Russian FSB border guards had carried out an act of armed aggression against Ukraine’s Nikopol and Berdyansk warships and the Yany Kapu tugboat in the Kerch Strait at the direct order of senior FSB officials,” the SBU claimed.

The Ukrainian side claimed  that the Nika Spirit tanker flying the Russian flag was identified at the port of Izmail through its IMO number and the Equasis information system as the Neyma tanker that had been used to shut the Kerch Strait.

Ukrainian security forces searched the tanker seizing documents, radio communication recordings made during the incident and logbooks. The tanker’s crew members were questioned.

The SBU said that the tanker “has been recognized as real evidence, investigators plan to request a court to arrest it.”

The developments with the tanker demonstrate that the government of newly-elected Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is not going to provide a course really different from those of Petro Poroshenko.

Despite formal remarks regarding the need of the ceasefire regime with forces of the Donetsk People’s Republic and the Lugansk People’s Republic in eastern Ukraine, and at least a formal de-escalation with Russia, little real steps have been made in this direction.

    Judaism needs to be extinguished. It is the primary problem facing humanity. With a Jew president and prime minister. Ukraine is the poster child for what happens when Jews take over. Few have suffered more at the hands of Jews than Ukraine. And the tragedy there is an ongoing open sore. Even with 95% dejudification Ukraine is still being victimized by the vermin Jew. The sooner that Judaism is removed from our planet, the better that it will be for everyone. Including former Jews.

    • Toronto Tonto

      We can do WITHOUT you dumbazz Russian Nazi scum .

      • RichardD

        Jews collaborated with Nazis on the holocaust fratricide to use it to create Israel.

          Cut the shit with the jews dude, this is about ukrops following the fascist U.S, yeah there’s some anglosionists in it but that’s it, this is more about the trillions in debt of USA they try to mislead the public from it because it’s about to explode in their faces. So they are pushing for conflict in other parts of the world.

            Idiot, it is always all about the TALMUDIC/CABALISTIC/SATANIC JEWS (never all who call themselves Jews). If you put your thought, conclusions and objectives into SYMPTOMS OF THAT PROBLEM you will never accomplish a damned thing worth while. That’s the world’s whole problem today and THE ONLY REASON nothing ever changes for the better. Everything the nations do – with the exception of Russia most of the time, Iran and maybe a few others – is directly THE WISHES OF THAT SATANIC CAUSE. Wake the hell up. Or are you one of the satanic tribe too?

          From the historical reference in Volyn we can clearly see that Obama in Ukraine was using the supreme international crime (The Crime of Aggression) as a means of preventing Russia’s claims to the Donbass. And Poroshenko as one of Obama’s missives gave a speech where for the first time in history a Western leader boasts about targeting woman and children.

          Poroshenko stated….“We (Kiev regime) will have our jobs, they (Donbass, ethnic Russian East) will not. We will have our pensions, they will not. We will have care for children, for people and retirees, they will not. Our children will go to schools and kindergartens… theirs will hole up in the basements. Because they are not able to do a thing. This is exactly how we will win this war!”

          Keep in mind he is talking about Ukrainians, his fellow countrymen. He openly flouted international law, his militia’s used cluster and phospherous munitions against all conventions. He terrorised civilian populations. This was Poroshenko’s strategy to win this civil war, genocide.

        The Maidan demonstrations in early 2014, which led to the overthrow of the legally elected Ukrainian government witnessed an estimated 15,000 people marching in celebration of Stepan Bandera’s 105th birthday. The neo-Nazi Svoboda Party along with the Fatherland Party of Yulia Tymoshenko both supported this commemoration of the former Nazi ally and war criminal. In the late 1930s Stepan Bandera became the leader of the Organisation of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN), the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA) was the name of the Ukrainian partisan paramilitary force that arose from the OUN and fought Soviet armies in the 1940s. During World War II the OUN worked with the German occupation and participated in the massacre of Jews, Poles, and Russians.

        In 1943 Bandera’s followers massacred 70,000 Poles the majority of whom were unarmed men, women, and children. This mass killing took place in Volyn, Western Ukraine. In the spring and summer of 1943 peasants of Volyn under the leadership of the Galician intelligentsia using bullets, axes and other improvised means assassinated tens of thousands of Poles living in the villages and towns of the region. The political leadership of the OUN had suddenly realised that the Germans might lose the war. So because of the presence of the Polish population the political leadership had simply decided to get rid of that population to prevent Poland’s claim to Volyn. By 1945 the OUN had, in Eastern Galicia, killed 130,000. Many people had their eyes gouged out and were then hacked to death. After WWII the OUN kept fighting against the forces of the USSR and People’s Poland until 1949.

      • Yes, Zelensky is a Nazzi scum and should be dealt accordingly, no matter what ethnic origin, sexual or religious orientation he chooses to be. And so are you WELL KNOWN fascist SOD tonto.

    What a bunch of fascists.

      I don’t know about the membership of the latest Ukrainian government’s executive but I do know that 14 out of the 15 members of Porkie’s cabinet were jews. I suspect the latest cabinet is much the same, despite the flaming rhetoric splashed over the comments section here about “fash cists” and “naught sees”.

      • occupybacon

        Also despite the antisemitism of the poor Russians most billionaires around Putin are jews

  • cechas vodobenikov

    more CIA nazi failures—if this is not resolved quickly, Russia will merely blockade Ukraine ports in the Sea of Azov, further crippling their economy…Ukraine has lost Crimea and effectively, the Donbass—all of their neighbors have abandoned them

    • occupybacon

      Then NATO will block any Russian ship from passing though Dardanelles. Sanctions are already biting Nord and Turkish Streams. Russia will beg Ukraine and Poland to let them trade with Europe.

      • cechas vodobenikov

        u r an idiot—nordstream and turkstream will be completed will be completed in less than 12 months (there r no extant relevant sanctions that regard either (do live in comic book land?)—Turkey controls the bosphorous and would never risk a war w Russia—they have been defeated by Russia in each of the 17 times they confronted Russia in war

        • occupybacon

          Not Turkey alone but NATO can block Russian vessels from entering in the Mediterranean

          If you count Russia’s battles from medieval age as today lessons you are the one living in the comic book.

          NS is already suspended. Mark my words: You will forget it in 12 months.

          • cechas vodobenikov

            your words r marked as stupid—NATO is a paper tiger that will never confront Russia directly (blocking Russian vessels…LOL: u do live in Disney cartoon—-the US is now irrelevant in the ME, made so by Russia

          • occupybacon

            Lol, poor Russia can’t invade Ukraine and Bibi bombs Latakia whenever he wants, just tens of meters away from Russian bases

          • cechas vodobenikov

            Israel has not bombed Latakia once u infantile idiot—-Crimea and the Donbass r now Russia

          • occupybacon
          • cechas vodobenikov

            civilians—but not Russian bases—u r an idiot

          • occupybacon

            And you said: “Israel has not bombed Latakia once u infantile idiot”. Does Latakia mean only Russian bases to you, vodka genius?

          • cechas vodobenikov

            u r obviously a racist–confused…it is murikans that r racistly anti-Jew…not Russians…Adorno demonstrated that murikans were more racistly anti-Jew than were ordinary Germans in 1940
            u r 1 more proof

          • occupybacon

            Someone left without vodka again…go beat your mom, take her pension, buy some more

    And this, eh…. isnt anything than an freak show, the Orcs got desperate, and did uh…. or had to, do something, anything, and acodingly to their level, then did managed to storm an boat laying in the docks, fanstastic, its an miracle, and thats it. What comes next, hopefully they dont harm the crew, but then again, we are dealing with the Orcs so you never know.

    Second, to be frank, sites as Russian Insider, is one of the few remaining sites that I reallt enjoy, and is also educational, but in this days attacked hard, from all sides, since propaganda, historical lies and fakering is exposed an mass on an level few can match, Ron Unz is an expetional one, I bow my head in all humbleness for brave people, because it really is about been brave, first challange one self, then challange others, it took me years to grown my own balls enough to do that, and it wasnt easy.
    And people stil dont get it, SF, why we had ww2, ww1 etc, not because Russians are evil not because Germans are evil, etc, but because of an group that is as we speak crashing the banana republic run by Gaylord Chump, an Kosher Nostra Bitch.
    And again, most of the attackers are either ignorants (willfully or not, isnt an exuse) or simply lying, pimping the propaganda the MSM feeds them thru decades, and never realises that what They know is lies, nothing else than lies, like the ISISrael/Palestina issues just on an larger scale.

    To the Sovjet apologistas, tell me, how many countrys did the Bolshewiks attack before Germany retaliated, do you even know, Finland ( the Sovjets bomb an vilage in the Karelian, and then blamed the Finns for it, sound familiare dont it, its called False Flags), Poland, Romania, Bulgaria, Iran, the Balticks (and you wounder why the Germans where considered heroes, do you know anything at all or are you so week mentally that this cant be digested, huh), but somehow they never want to debate that, but blames Germany for everything.
    WW1 and 2 where started by the UssA and Britain, whom raped and robbed Russia and steared it into the jaws of the empire, and so on, I leave it there.

    But to be frank, thats the past, and I will forcus on the future.
    https://www.investmentwatchblog.com/its-obvious-who-will-replace-trump-after-the-controlled-demolition-of-the-economy/
    I am in awe, this, if anything you read should scare you, this will and should do that.
    An briliant tour de force in the banana republics history and what is coming.
    Amen to it all, and respect.
    This, Russians, is what is coming to you, because your Gov is week and the enemy is within, and is as we speak doing the preperation of an new world order, when UssA colapses.
    All on purpouse, all done by the Tribe.
    The banning of truth is an start, and now they have wigled them self into an corner, stupid people, and Russian historians is lying thru their teeths, not onlly aboout ww2, but even back to the Napolean war, etc, dont think they know, they do, thats why librarys are burned down, etc.
    Because, if you wrote why and whom is behind the ugh….. ” Nazis” in Ukraina, in Britain, France, etc, they where all Jews, yup, 15 years in the slammer, right Putin, either is this done by been moronic, or is this deliberate, etc, but this Russians will be the force that will come and bite your ass of into the future.
    Its bloody hopeless.
    Suport South Front, the deserve every nickle.
    They are game changing, and eveybody kows it, thats why we have the idiot brigade from ISISrael here, all the time, its an sign of quality and their fear for truths.
    My deepest and sincere respect.

    peace
