In accordance with the Russian-Ukrainian agreements reached, warships captured in the Kerch Strait region in November 2018 will be transferred to the Ukrainian side on November 18. Interfax reports this with reference to the Border Administration of the Russian Federal Security Service in Crimea.

"Three Ukrainian vessels - the Yana Kapu tugboat and the Nikopol and Berdyansk small armored artillery boats are being towed from the port of Kerch to the agreed transfer point. They will be returned on November 18," the statement said.

The border agency refrained from any details regarding the transfer procedure. Earlier it was reported that Ukrainian ships captured by Russia are being withdrawn from Kerch.

As noted by Kryminform, the transfer of ships will take place in "neutral waters". "Some actions to transfer Ukrainian warships have already begun. Boats and a tugboat will be delivered to the neutral waters of the Black Sea. After that, representatives of the Ukrainian side will be able to approach and pick up the ships," the newspaper wrote.

Earlier, the President’s Office confirmed that the process of returning Ukrainian ships is in its final stage.

As we reported earlier, the Foreign Ministry of Ukraine sent the note to Russia in which it demands to return the vessels captured in Ketch Strait in 2018.
