This was stated by Federation Council member Sergei Tsekov, reports TASS.
The Russian Senator noted that the Russian investigation could be of particular interest to the Ukrainian ships, but the government do not want to spend money on storing someone else’s property.
Another Senator from the occupied Crimea Olga Cowicide accused Ukraine in the desire to make a political move.
“The Ukrainian side did not pursue the goal of freeing the sailors and ships, Ukraine needs a political demarche. Ukraine once again creates a political provocation, not thinking about the asset nor about the fate of their people”, – said Cowicide.
She recalled that in the Crimea are still the Ukrainian Navy ships that are there from 2014, and Kyiv ignores the request of the Russian authorities to pick them up.
