The representatives of the U.S., Great Britain, Germany, Poland, Lithuania, Sweden, Estonia, the Netherlands, Bulgaria, Georgia, Latvia and Canada urged Russia to immediately release the Ukrainian sailors and return the detained vessels without any additional conditions during the statements of the delegations, as Ukrinform reported.
“We have seen these Russian games earlier. They hope that the international community will silently agree – with a creeping annexation of Crimea, with the attempts to change the facts of reality forcefully. We have to prevent that,” Jonathan Allen, Deputy Permanent Representative of Great Britain to the UN said.

Joining the demand of the U.S. Representative Jonathan Cohen, the British diplomat also stressed the importance of the demand to release the Ukrainian sailors and return the detained vessels of Ukraine’s Navy.
The representative of Lithuania agreed with him, also stating that Russia had to return sailors and vessels to Ukraine “without any additional conditions”. The representative of Sweden joint this words and claimed a full support of Ukraine’s territorial integrity and sovereignty. The representative of Germany noted that he was very satisfied with the fact that Ukraine held a briefing and such Russia’s actions “should not be left without reaction”.

The representatives from Poland, Estonia, the Netherlands, Bulgaria, Latvia and Canada joint the demand to immediately release the Ukrainian sailors and vessels. Latvia’s representative called the Ukrainian sailors POWs.
