MOSCOW, June 14, /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Foreign Ministry has voiced serious concern over the latest incidents on the Russian-Ukrainian state border.
“The Russian FSB Border Guard Service sent the statements to Ukraine in which it expressed concern over the threat to security of citizens in the border zone,” the ministry said on Saturday.
“Russia demands Ukraine take immediate steps towards normalising the situation on the stat border and pull back armoured vehicles from the state border,” the ministry said.
If Ukraine continues violations of the state border, Russia will take measures to prevent such actions,” it said.
On June 5, Ukraine’s Su-27 jet violated the Russian border near the settlement of Kuybyshevo and penetrated Russia’s airspace. On June 12, the Mi-8 helicopter with Ukrainian symbols also violated Russia’s airspace in the same area.
On June 13, an infantry fighting vehicle of Ukraine's armed forces crossed the Russian state border near the settement of Yezerovo, Kuybyshevsky district. Border guards detained the fighting vehicle and its crew retreated.
Moscow has demanded Kiev stop provocations on the Russian border, the ministry said on June 13.
Such provocations "hamper the Russian-Ukrainian dialogue that has hardly begun", the ministry said.
The intrusion of a Ukrainian infantry fighting vehicle grossly violates the fundamental norms of international law, it said.
“We consider such actions an illegal act that will prevent the peaceful resolution of the armed conflict in the southeast of Ukraine,” the ministry said.
