Baku / 26.02.22 / President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said that Turkey had closed the passage of Russian warships to the Black Sea. He wrote about this on his Twitter account.
“Thanks to our friend, Mr. President Erdogan and the Turkish people for their powerful support. The ban on the passage of Russian warships to the Black Sea and significant military and humanitarian assistance to Ukraine are extremely important today,” the president stressed.
Zelensky stressed that the Ukrainian people will never forget this.
Earlier, Russia announced that it had closed the Ukrainian Black Sea coast in connection with “a counter-terrorist operation.”
