“On November 18, the transfer to the Ukrainian side of three ships of the Ukrainian Navy, which in November 2018 violated the border of the Russian Federation during the deliberate provocation of Kiev in the Kerch Strait and were detained by Russian law enforcement agencies,” the statement says.

Earlier, the border control of the FSB in the Crimea reported that the transfer of ships to representatives of Kiev will be held on Monday, November 18.
