U.S. Congress condemns Russia's illegal actions in Azov Sea – embassy
The unlawful actions of Russia in the Sea of Azov were condemned in the Congress of the United States of America, the press service of the Ukrainian Embassy to the U.S. has reported.
"Russia's blatant violation of international law in the Sea of Azov and their provocative attack against Ukraine's sovereignty are totally unacceptable. Russia must immediately restore the freedom of navigation through the Kerch Strait to allow Ukrainian vessels to freely use Ukrainian ports," a statement by Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick, co-chair of the Congressional Ukraine Caucus reads posted by Ukrainian diplomatic mission on Facebook.
"We cannot ignore Russia's aggression against Ukraine," the congressman added.
