MOSCOW, March 12. /ITAR-TASS/. A criminal case versus Commander of the Russian Black Sea Fleet Vice-Admiral Alexander Vitko that Kiev authorities initiated is one more act of provocation that may destabilize the situation in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, Russian Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov told reporters on Wednesday.
The deputy defense minister commented on information about threats that Ukrainian law enforcement agencies make for criminal prosecution of Commander of the Russian Black Sea Fleet Vice-Admiral Alexander Vitko “for abetment to high treason and staging acts of sabotage.”
“The Black Sea Fleet commander fulfils his duties on legal grounds in strict compliance with effective Russian-Ukrainian agreements on basing of the Russian fleet in Ukraine and the Regulations of Russian Armed Forces. Amid permanent threats of forcible actions by ultra-nationalists he is taking measures required to protect the naval base of the Black Sea Fleet, residence places of servicemen and members of their families that permit to ensure their reliable protection and security,” Antonov noted.
