Volunteer unfurls Ukrainian flag in occupied Crimea

20:50, 17 December 2018

A Ukrainian volunteer unfurled a Ukrainian flag in support of 24 Ukrainian sailors captured by the Russian military in the Kerch Strait. The yellow-blue banner appeared on the top of a mountain in the area of Laspinsky Pass in the occupied Crimea.

As is known, three Ukrainian naval ships and their 24 crew members were captured in the Kerch Strait last month. Russia’s FSB, the federal security service insists that the Ukrainians ‘illegally entered’ the Russian naval border. Currently, the Ukrainian sailors are staying at a detention centre in Moscow.
