       DonateIgor VoronchenkoSpeaking at the second International Maritime Security Conference in Kiev, Igor Voronchenko, commander of the Ukrainian Navy, said that Kiev would ask Turkey to close the passage of the Bosphorus Strait to Russian warships.“As the commander of the naval forces, I ask and express my confidence that the international community will still make a decision and recognise that there was an act of aggression against the state of Ukraine … We will try to ask for the closing of the passage of the Bosphorus Strait in the Republic of Turkey”, he said, accusing Russia of violating international law.Voronchenko claimed that it would be achieved in line with article 19 of the 1936 Montreux Convention regarding the Regime of the Straits, which gives Turkey control of the Bosphorus Straits and the Dardanelles and regulates the passage of naval warships.“We had to show our face in the Kerch Strait and the Sea of Azov, and show what these boats are capable of”, he added.Earlier on November 29, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said he had discussed the possibility of mediating the recent crisis between Russia and Ukraine, which erupte when a Ukrainian naval group violated Rusisa’s territorial waters last weekend.MORE ON THE TOPIC:Russia-Ukraine Black Sea Military Crisis: On The Brink Of WarFSB: Detailed Timeline Of Provocation Acts Of Ukrainian NavyUkraine Imposes Martial Law, Calls On Foreign States To Deploy Warships, Observers In Black Sea, Sea Of AzovDetained Ukrainian Servicemen Confirm They Provoked Black Sea Incident With Russia Upon Order From Their CommandInformation War Against Russia.
