Border ships moved from Crimea to Odessa
12 ships of Sevastopol and Yalta coast guard units have been relocated to Odessa maritime security detachment, reports the press office of the State Border Service of Ukraine.
In the nearest future, ships and boats will be assigned to the Odessa coast guard detachment. They will be involved in protecting the territorial sea and the exclusive (maritime) economic zone of Ukraine.
“Such actions were dictated by the need to preserve the life and health of personnel, to prevent the capture of ships, weapons and equipment,” says the border guards press office.
