Ukraine will detain all Russian vessels in the Black Sea and will shoot on sight

Disproof

The title of the article is misleading, implying that it is a matter of course that Ukraine will detain all Russian vessels in the Black Sea and shoot on sight.

According to the new Ukraine's law that regulates its rights within zone adjacent to territorial waters, Ukraine will be able to control, prevent and punish for the violations of customs, fiscal, immigration and sanitary rules. The law takes into consideration the regulations of the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea. It mentions that the use of force is allowed only in exceptional cases.
