Russia has shifted from detaining foreign cargo ships in the Azov Sea to detaining them as they enter the Kerch Strait

Russia has shifted from detaining foreign cargo ships in the Azov Sea to detaining them as they enter the Kerch Strait, Oleh Slobodian, spokesman for Ukraine’s State Border Guard Service, tells reporters. He said some ships have waited for three days for permission to move through the strait. Due to the delays, shipping companies are reviewing plans to service Ukraine’s two ports in the Azov Sea, Beryansk and Mariupol. Through July 16, Russia’s FSB had detained 148 ships bound for Ukraine – about one a day.
