Russian-Ukrainian Naval Deal Should Remain Unchanged — Moscow

MOSCOW, Russia -- Russia has warned Ukraine that any attempt by Kiev to change the terms of Moscow’s lease of a key naval base on the Black Sea would also threaten agreements on recognition of each other’s territorial borders, AFP reported.


Russian Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov said that the leasing agreement for the naval base in the Crimea was part of a broader Russian-Ukrainian treaty on territorial integrity.

“That is why pushing for changes to this accord would seem fatal,” Ivanov said.

Officials in Ukraine, which is embroiled in a bitter dispute over gas prices with the Russian state-controlled natural gas giant Gazprom, have suggested charging Russia higher fees for use of the base on Ukraine’s southern Crimean peninsula.
