OREANDA-NEWS The authority of the UN International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea does not apply to the situation of Ukrainian sailors who were detained for illegally entering Russia's territorial waters during a provocation in the Kerch Strait, said Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov on Tuesday, June 25.

“UN cannot consider this case as a subject to jurisdiction. This is the position of the Russian Federation. He was unequivocally represented in this court by our representatives, ”the press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation recalled.

To the clarifying question, does this mean that Moscow will not take into account the decisions of the UN Tribunal in this case, Peskov said: “Of course.”
