Thus, during patrol, the Ukrainian Maritime Guard, with the support of border aviation, surveyed areas of gas condensate fields and found captured self-lifting floating drilling rigs "Ukraine" (renamed the "Crimea-1") and "Tavrida". Flags of the aggressor country are raised on the drilling rigs.

As we reported earlier, Ukraine's Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba believes that Russia tries to manipulate the COVID-19 pandemic in order to get sanctions against it lifted on.
“This is manipulation because the EU has imposed sanctions not because of a coronavirus, but because of Russia's aggression against Ukraine. Accordingly, they can only be related to Russia's fulfillment of its obligations in the context of the peaceful settlement and de-occupation of the Ukrainian territories of Donbas and Crimea,” Kuleba stated during his conversation with his Danish counterpart Jeppe Kofod.
