“The whole world saw the evidence of the Russian military aggression, and no one would be able to argue with this. The whole world saw the video where the Russian military vessels attack Ukrainian ones. Obviously, that the front of the Russian aggression was extended and it reaches the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov,” Parubiy wrote.

As it was reported earlier, the coast guard ships of the Russian Navy acted aggressively against the ships of the Ukrainian Navy, which have been carrying out a scheduled transition from Odesa port to Mariupol port in the Sea of Azov.
