Yushchenko claims that Russian Black Sea Fleet involves Ukraine in a international conflict

Ющенко заявляет, что ЧФ России втянул Украину в международный конфликт

Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko considers the use of ships from the Russian Black Sea Fleet, which is based in Sevastopol, in military operations or for the creation of a sea blockade along the Georgian coastline a dangerous precedent. He made the statement today, August 12th, at a briefing in the airport "Simferopol," reports an IA Regnum correspondent.

"It's a dangerous precedent, in so far as it is through such precedents that Ukraine is drawn into international conflicts against its wishes," said the president of Ukraine. For this reason, explained Viktor Yushchenko, the Ukrainian MFA made the corresponding statement on August 10th in which it expressed the necessity to begin negotiations.
