 Pravda.RU Russian, Ukrainian Premiers to hold talks on dam construction in Kerch strait
As Ukrainian president Leonid Kuchma stated at a press conference in Kerch, Ukraine comes out for division of the water surface and seabed of the Azov Sea and Kerch Strait along the border which existed in the U.S.S.R. time, and is categorically against attaching a status of a common-use territory to the Sea of Azov.
In the deputy's opinion, on the part of the Ukrainian side we witness "an attempt to usurp an exclusive right to control the Kerch Strait." The Russian parliamentarian proposed the sole, in his opinion, possible variant to settle the issue: the Kerch Strait must be a strait of common use.
This opinion is contained in the Supreme Rada statement "On the elimination of the threat to Ukraine's territorial integrity caused by the Russian Federation's construction of a dam in the Kerch Strait", adopted on Thursday.
