SEVASTOPOL, March 23. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian national flag was hoisted on Ukrainian Navy’s flagship Slavutich in the Russian city of Sevastopol, Itar-Tass reported from the scene on Sunday.

Slavutich has lifted Russian national flag after talks on Saturday evening, a representative of the Sevastopol self-defence headquarters told Itar-Tass.

“There was no storming. Slavutich has lifted Russian national flag and the crew went on the shore,” the representative said.

A military registration station for Ukrainian servicemen operates in the city of Sevastopol where they can register, receive a monetary compensation of 2,000 hryvnas (around $192.9 dollars) and choose after that to continue military service in Russian army, leave for Ukraine or retire from the army.

No warships remained under Ukrainian flags in the city of Sevastopol. Small submarine chasers Ternopol and Khmelnitsky, missile-carrying cutters and auxiliary ships have hoisted Russian national flags before.
