Guilty shipowners should make up losses

The Foreign Ministry of Ukraine will turn to the Russian Federation with a demand to make up the losses, suffered by Ukraine as a result of the ecological catastrophe in the Kerch Strait, caused by Russian vessels.

      According to an UNIAN correspondent, MFA press-service chief Andriy Deshchytsia claimed this to a news conference today.

      “The damage is to be paid by ship-owners. The matter does not concern the payment from Russia as a state”, A.Deshchytsia stressed.
