KIEV (Reuters) – Russia has partially unlocked Ukrainian sea ports on the Azov Sea, Ukraine’s infrastructure minister Volodymyr Omelyan said on Tuesday.
“Yes, Berdyansk and Mariupol ports are partially unlocked. Vessels make their way to the entrance and exit through the Kerch strait toward Ukrainian ports … the movement is partially restored,” the ministry quoted Omelyan as saying.
