Deputy head of the Ukrainian navy has accused the Russian navy of hostile activity in the Sea of Azov – a form of attack that Russian forces “constantly practice”, including in Crimea. but says Ukraine has been investing in its navy since 2014.
Vice Admiral Andriy Tarasov called the threat “real” but says Ukraine’s armed forces would repel any such attempt. The senior officer revealed a large build-up of Russian forces close to Ukraine – which has raised fears in the UK, the United States, and across the NATO alliance that Russia is planning a further invasion of its neighbour including the sea border.
