The US Embassy in Ukraine “condemned” the construction of warships of the “Priboy” project at the “Gulf” plant in Kerch. This is reported on the diplomatic mission’s Twitter page.
As previously reported, Russian President Vladimir Putin took part in the ceremony of laying the Board of the universal landing craft section of the project 23900 “Ivan Rogov” and “Mitrofan Moskalenko” at the Kerch shipyard “Bay.”
According to US diplomats, Russia, the construction of “Surfs” violates international norms.
Also, the Embassy indicated that “the sanctions remain in force until Russia returns control of Crimea to Ukraine.”
Earlier, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine responded to the arrival of Vladimir Putin on the Peninsula. They said that the visit of the first person of Russia is “a gross violation of the state sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine.”
