The closure of European ports to Russian ships from the sea of Azov, if it happens, will only encourage Ukraine to further military action on land and at sea, and the responsibility for it will carry and the EU, has told RIA Novosti Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on international Affairs Konstantin Kosachev.

Earlier, according to news magazine Stern, General Secretary of the German Christian democratic Union Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, commenting on the incident with the violation of Ukrainian ships to the Russian border, urged the EU and the US to discuss the possibility of closing its ports to Russian ships from the sea of Azov.

«Assessment (of the actions of Ukraine – ed.) are inadequate, such as this one, will only encourage Ukraine to further military action on land and at sea. With increasing share of responsibility for its behaviour on the part of the European Union», — said Kosachev.

He emphasized that the aggression in the case of the incident in the Kerch Strait did not come from Russia but from Ukraine, and «not to see that can not only blind.»

«Therefore, the closure of the ports of the European Union for Ukrainian courts would be a logical and timeless response to the incident. Of course, it will not. Not for the EU supported Ukraine in its confrontation with Russia to give it to conduct an adequate assessment», — said the head of the Committee.
