In his words, all the strategic facilities of Crimea, including the Kerch Strait ferry line, are being guarded.

"Everything is under control, and heavily guarded, so they have no chance," Sheremet said.

In turn, the so-called Deputy Prime Minister of the Crimean government Ruslan Balbek claims that the naval blockade of Crimea will end with the first meeting with Russian ships.

"A naval blockade will end as soon as they first see the Russian border ships. [Crimea blockade coordinator Lenur] Islyamov's gang will not act as pirates in the Russian economic zone," he said.

Balbek said that the Russian border guards would not stand on ceremony with the offenders and, if necessary, would immediately open fire.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Lenur Islyamov, the main coordinator of the Crimea blockade, pledged to organize a "naval blockade" of the peninsula after the transport and energy ones.
