SIMFEROPOL, March 24. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu during a working trip to Crimea has appointed Rear Admiral Denis Berezovsky deputy commander of the Russian Black Sea Fleet.
The minister handed the personal military service number of the Russian army to Berezovsky.
Rear Admiral Berezovsky had earlier been commander of the Ukrainian Navy, but on March 2 swore allegiance to the Crimean people. The Kiev authorities announced his dismissal from the commander’s post, and the Ukrainian prosecutor’s office launched a probe in his activity.
