PUTIN OPENLY AND DIRECTLY ACCUSES POROSHENKO OF ORGANIZING KERCH STRAIT PROVOCATION

MOSCOW, Russian Federation – In a bold diplomatic move, which no doubt will carry understood consequences, Russian President Vladimir Putin has just accused the Ukrainian leader Petro Poroshenko of organizing a provocation in the Kerch Strait.

“There are clear signs of a provocation prepared in advance, designed to use this as a pretext for imposing martial law in the country. It has nothing to do with attempts to regulate relations between Russia and Ukraine. This is a game of aggravation, ” the president said, speaking at the VTB Capital forum “Russia is calling! ”.

He recalled that the Ukrainian ships entered the Russian territorial waters, which were such even before the annexation of the Crimea.

“Without responding to the requests of our border guards, we began to move straight to this bridge. They did not react to the offers to wait in the waiting area, they were still offered to return back to the waiting area – even after violating our state border, they were silent, they didn’t respond at all, ” the president added.

Russian border guards, as the head of state noted, were doing their duty. “And how should border guards act? Military vessels invaded the territorial waters of the Russian Federation and do not respond, it is unclear what they are going to do. How should they act? If they acted differently, they [the border guards] all had to be brought to justice, ” Putin said.

Experts widely agree that Poroshenko’s provocation was meant to provoke precisely the Russian reaction which would give him the political capital to call for a state of Martial Law. He has been able to achieve this after a fight with the Rada, arriving at a compromise Martial Law condition of 30 days, limited to certain regions.

In a way, by instating marshal law on the regions that are closest to Russia and mostly Russian speaking, he and the right wingers who oppose him are effectively dividing Ukraine further, pushing those areas towards Russia, where many would rather be anyway.

I’ve being trying to confirm no law of sea changes that might undercut the Russian position on this -channel.
One item seems too have-evaporated.
There was a dredged channel, starting at I think Maripol, past Kerch that
had to be maintained, and one of the terms of the base agreement for Crimea, Had Dredging and marker/buoy maintence for this channel And traffic control- was the sole responsibility of the Russian coast guard.
About 10 years ago there were equipment losses that delayed the dredging, and Kiev was complaining about it fairly loudly. Grain shipments were affected, so Canadian agricultural news outlets noted and explained it. I seem to recall that Odessa was off the menu for an alternate port for reasons Not involving channel clearances at that time.

With the application of martial law, any laws and government agency including civil activities could be paralize Only military and/ or arm forces dominate the law. Evan an election were caught between two fires,death of freeddom and democracy. a sign of pure evil imitation of dictatorship that the US always opposses but not in this case, the US or UE will praise it
