OFFICIAL STATEMENT 170
Spain’s Concern in Relation to the Serious Incidents that Occurred Yesterday in the Kerch Strait
26/11/2018

​Spain expresses its great concern over the serious incidents that took place yesterday around the Kerch Strait which caused the Russian forces, with an unjustified use of force, to capture three Ukrainian navy vessels and to detain and injure several members of their crews. We call for a stabilisation of the tension in the area, the release of the detainees and the restitution of the captured vessels. We reiterate the obligation to respect the principles of free transit and navigation in the Kerch Strait and the Sea of Azov, respectively. Spain reaffirms that only respect for the principles of International Law, avoiding unilateral acts violating it, ensures international peace and security.
