Presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the Kerch Strait is still open for sailing, including Ukrainian ships. That's what Interfax reports on Thursday 29 November.
"I do not know if there are any restrictions," Peskov said in a response to a journalist's question about restrictions on going through the Kerch valley at the Ukrainian courts.
He explained, however, that Kerch may regulate navigation based on weather conditions.
"We know that the Kerch Strait works as usual, and you know that sometimes, due to weather conditions, Kerch Harbor, which plays the role of administration, can decide to regulate the voyage," Peškov said.
As NEWSONE says earlier, The Kremlin has refused to offer Turkey a solution to the conflict between Ukraine and the Russian Federation. Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin's press secretary Dmitry Peskov said Russia does not meet the need for any mediation services to resolve the conflict situation in the Kerch Strait. According to him, Moscow is grateful to all those who want to help fight conflict escalation, but they do not see the need for it.
