The Ukrainian side must clear the Black Sea coastal strip so that ships with food can leave the ports. Moscow's position on this issue has no alternative, Kyiv must understand this, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said at a press conference following a meeting with Armenian Foreign Minister Ararat Mirzoyan, RIA Novosti reports.
“I hope that the Ukrainians are aware that there is no alternative to resolving this issue precisely on this basis, which is understandable, reasonable and objective, — Lavrov stressed, adding that the Ukrainian authorities it is worth stopping looking for a way out in demands for the West to “arm them to the teeth”, including the supply of anti-ship systems, which, “according to Ukrainian officials, they want to use against the ships of the Russian Black Sea Fleet.”
According to him, Turkey is trying to convince Ukraine to stop dragging out this process. Lavrov noted that Kyiv does not need to demand armaments and “do not inflame passions in the media space in the hope of maintaining its ratings, but do concrete things.”
