“Russia has confirmed its vessels have used weapons to stop Ukrainian ships that had entered Russian waters in the Black Sea illegally.” “The three Ukrainian vessels – the ‘Berdiansk’, the ‘Nikopol’ and the ‘Yany Kapu’ – were ignoring “legal demands to stop” and “performing dangerous maneuvers,” and the Russian warships had to open fire to force them to stop, the FSB says. The ships were then seized and towed to the Crimean port of Kerch.”
A delegation from the German Parliament will visit Crimea next year.
No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about "official delegations" allegedly visiting Crimea. The German politician mentioned by RIA Novosti as a source is not a member of Bundestag, but the chairman of the Left faction in the Quakenbruck council, in Germany. The European Union does not recognise and continues to strongly condemn this violation of international law. Germany's position regarding Crimea is very clear "Ukraine’s territorial integrity is not negotiable", as stated by the Chancellor Angela Merkel. Further debunking by The Insider.
