The Russian President Vladimir Putin stated that Russia did not intend to take any unilateral actions concerning the Azov crisis, as he said at the annual press conference, Interfax reported.

“We are ready to adhere to the agreements and do not announce any unilateral actions,” Putin said.

Speaking of the naval vessels, Putin noted that Russia did not impede their crossing, but “one has to be always in contact with our border guards”.

Earlier, the UN General Assembly supported the resolution “On the issue of militarization of the Crimean Autonomous Republic and Sevastopol (Ukraine) and parts of Black and Azov seas”.

As we reported earlier, the Russian Navy attacked the Ukrainian vessels in the Kerch Strait in the Sea of Azov. The vessels were damaged, and the crews captured by the Russian special services. Ukraine and the Western governments consider the attack an act of aggression. The Ukrainian sailors were taken to a remand center in Crimea, and then in Moscow, charged with the 'illegal crossing of the Russian territorial waters'. All sailors deny their guilt, claiming they are prisoners of war.
