“Training ship Sedov did not get the permission for the entrance to the territorial waters of Estonia as, according to our information, the cadets of Kerch State Maritime Technological University from occupied Crimea stay on its board,” the message said.
Estonia did not allow the Russian vessel with the Crimean cadet to enter its waters, as it will contradict Estonian policy on the non-recognition of the annexation of Crimea.
Sedov bark had to enter the Estonian waters on April 13-14 in a few days before the visit of Kersti Kaljulaid, the President of Estonia to Moscow. The ban was declared on April 10. The Russian Embassy in Tallinn called this ban unfriendly act.
Crimea was annexed by Russia after the illegal referendum held on the peninsula in March 2014. Earlier, the Russian military captured all strategic military objects and buildings of the key authoritative bodies. Neither Ukraine nor the rest of the civilized countries recognized the results of the referendum. A number of the European and the world countries, including Ukraine, imposed the economic sanctions against Russia.
