“It will help us not only to effectively counter any landing operations but also eliminate any vessel which is a threat to our state within 300 kilometers even if it is located in a home port,” Turchynov added.

“It won’t be a problem for us to destroy any passage or bridge, in particular, the one which was advertised extensively,” he said.

Turchynov ensured that “Russia’s aggression would not stop the plans to create Navy ship-mounted grouping in Azov Sea”.

“We have to show the whole world that Ukraine has not lost its positions in Azov Sea and this sea where the international law is applied and there might be both Ukrainian and foreign vessels,” NSCD Secretary said.
