Russia wants to turn the Sea of Azov into an "internal" sea: what is the biggest danger about
The aggressor country, Russia, wants to make the Sea of Azov its "inland sea". The goal of the occupiers is to neutralize the effect of international law in this region.
This was stated by the head of the Zaporizhzhia Regional Military Administration, Yurii Malashko, during a briefing on December 8. According to him, Moscow plans to change the official status of the Azov Sea.
"The Russians are preparing a project to change the status of the Sea of Azov. The occupiers plan to define the Sea of Azov as an inland sea of Russia at the legislative level. The change in the status of the reservoir, as planned by the occupiers, should neutralize the effect of international law on this territory," the head of the Region Military Administration explained.
Yurii Malashko also said that in the occupied territories of Zaporizhzhia region, Russian occupiers continue to seize the homes and property of people who have left the occupation.
More than 600 residents of the region, including children, remain in Russian captivity.
"There is a tendency for our military to be convicted and even sent to Siberia. This is a violation of any international conventions," said the head of the Zaporizhzhia Regional Military Administration.
