Russian authorities have moved three Ukrainian military ships from their Crimean port in order to return them to Ukraine officials. The navy vessels were seized during a clash in the Kerch Strait last year.
DW reports that tug boats were seen towing the vessels through the strait, which separates Crimea from the Russian mainland, a photographer working for the Reuters news agency reported.
Separately, Russia’s security service FSB said that the three vessels would be handed over to Ukraine on Monday.
The move was “in accordance with the agreements reached with the Ukrainian side,” sources from FSB’s Crimean branch told Russian news agency Interfax.
