Ukraine has no plans to conduct missile tests in the Kerch Strait, National Security and Defense Council Secretary of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov said commenting on the statement by the Russian Federal Agency of Air Transport of the alleged "violations by the Ukrainian side of Russian airspace during missile exercises", the NSDC press service reported.
"Russia's hysteria about Ukraine's alleged violation of all international agreements through unilateral decision to conduct missile tests in the 'sovereign air space of the Russian Federation', is devoid of common sense," the NSDC's press service quoted Turchynov as saying.
The NSDC secretary recalled that in accordance with all international agreements, the sovereign airspace of the Russian Federation in the Black Sea ends in the middle of the Kerch Strait, and further, to the west of the Strait lies the sovereign airspace of Ukraine.
Thus, all of the planned missile exercises are conducted by Ukraine in full compliance with its international agreements and obligations.
"That's why we ask the Russian Federation not to interfere with the testing through hysteria and provocations," Turchynov summed up.
