MOSCOW, February 27, (ITAR-TASS). The Russian Defence Ministry will continue giving financial support to Ukrainian citizens working in the interests of the Black Sea Fleet. It will fulfill all the financial obligations connected with the stay of the fleet in Crimea, Anatoly Antonov, the deputy defence minister, told reporters on Thursday.
“We confirm determination to observe unswervingly Russia’s obligations to contribute to social and economic development of populated localities where units of the Black Sea Fleet are stationed,” Antonov said.
He said the ministry would continue paying wages to Ukrainian citizens employed in offices and enterprises of the Black Sea Fleet.
“We are ready to continue fulfilling Russia’s financial obligations to pay the rent for the presence of the Black Sea Fleet in Crimea,” he added.
The deputy defence minister also stressed that ensuring security of units of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet is a priority task. Places of residence of servicemen and their families are increasingly guarded. “This function is performed by anti-terrorist units of the Black Sea Fleet,” Antonov said, noting that these measures are in keeping with the Russian-Ukrainian agreements.
