As of Feb. 1, 2018, 665 vessels that illegally entered the ports of occupied Crimea were spotted, according to Egor Rebrov, the Deputy Head of the Prosecution of Autonomous Republic of Crimea (currently based in Kyiv) said, as the press service of the agency reports.

Rebrov said that a special register of the vessels violating the law was created and is renewed automatically.

“The recorded information is later on used for taking criminal law measures against the offenders, as well as during the inquiries for international help,” Rebrov said.

The sea ports of Crimea were closed by the decree of the Ukrainian government in June 2014, after the annexation. Breaking this law is considered a violation of international law, Ukrainian law, and an act undermining Ukraine’s sovereignty. It could result in the criminal responsibility of vessel owners, operators, and captains.
