Ukraine dispatched sea patrol ships and aircraft “to protect the city from the penetration of saboteur groups” on the eve of the second anniversary of the mass murder of Russian citizens of Odessa in the Trade Unions Building.

A video report was published today by the state border service of Ukraine.

“5 tactical groups of ships and coast guard boats of the State border service of Ukraine are involved in protecting against approaches from the sea. Also, “diamond” aircraft are in the air to monitor the situation in territorial sea waters and border with Crimea. Just yesterday, frontier aircraft made three flights and examined 4800 km2 of Ukrainian sea territory, 2340 km2 of Azov sea, and 135 km of the state border,” reports the Ukrainian border guards.
