The Minister added that now experts can evaluate the condition of the boats “Nikopol”, “Berdyansk” and the tug “Yana Kapu” and will give recommendations on how to quickly bring them into operation.

As pointed out by the Russian foreign Ministry, the ships were material evidence in a criminal case of illegal border crossing, they were transferred to Kiev immediately after the Russian law enforcement agencies have completed the necessary investigations.
UN international Tribunal for the law of the sea announced its decision on the incident in the Kerch Strait on may 25, 2019. The court ruled that Russia must return to Ukraine ships with all 24 sailors detained together with them. Moscow insisted that an investigation of the incident lies in the field of criminal law and is not within the competence of the Tribunal.
