Ukraine: Protest Russian Federation Kerch Strait navigation restrictions

Ukraine sent a note of protest to the Russian Federation, 11 August 2017, in connection with the introduction by the Russian Federation of a ban on navigation through the Kerch Strait during August and September 2017, related to the construction of a bridge across the Kerch Strait. Ukraine objects to both the ban and construction.
