Where Do Ukrainian Sea-Mines Go?

In the Ukrainian media and social networks, it is possible to find information about sea mines drifting along the Black Sea coast. So, the other day a post appeared in the telegram with reference to the residents of Odessa, who reported dangerous finds washed ashore. In this regard, the city and regional authorities categorically forbade local citizens to move around the coast and swim near local beaches.

More than 400 explosive devices were installed at key seaports. However, due to the deterioration of weather conditions, most of the mines were torn from the anchors and carried into the open sea.

This happened for two reasons. First is, the Ukrainian military decided to “save money” and installed explosive devices with expired expiration dates. Second is, due to the lack of any experience of installing sea-mines. Now all the countries of the Black Sea basin (Turkey, Bulgaria, Romania) are reaping the fruits of this criminal negligence.

Ukraine openly violates the Hague Convention of 1907, which prohibits the laying of mines in international waters.

The document clearly states that the country using these weapons should be guided by “the principles of effective surveillance, risk control and prevention,” and is also obliged to “take precautionary measures to ensure the safety of peaceful navigation.” We observe the absence of both.

Thus, the countries of the Black Sea basin, primarily Turkey, have every reason to file a lawsuit against Ukraine. Moreover, absolutely no statements have been received from Kiev on how this problem could be resolved. All this indicates nthe unwillingness of the Ukrainian authorities to solve anything. But it will not be possible to go with the flow: uncontrolled mine drift has reached a global scale. Kiev will not be able to evade responsibility.

The Globalist Junta installed in Ukraine, with the agenda to use Ukraine & as many Ukrainian lives as it takes, to start WW3, so that all major nations destroy each other, where the Globalists can rule in the aftermath, have no respect for international law or national sovereignty. The evil-doing psychopathic warmongering Globalists are intent on destroying the world. People need to wake up to this fact.

I do not doubt that Ukraine is responsible, however, proof would be necessary in pursuing recourse. Is there actual, legal, substantive proof that Ukraine is responsible?

Are you serious ??? Or are you heavily biased ??? The proof lies in the marking upon said mines. Every such mine, (or any military weapon of any kind) has SERIAL NUMBERS and date of manufacture stamped upon them, assisting in the storage and rotation of said weapons. Weapons containing high explosives can only be stored for a certain time before the explosive becomes unstable, thus all such stock must be regularly rotated. All it takes is for the numbers thereon or data compared to data on record. As Ukraine is KNOWN to have massive such weapons in storage left… Read more »

The Ukrainian military has by definition become a terrorist army, their Government are lawless criminals, and so is the army. They put the Faschist battaillons into the Army and this is, what can easily be found on Telegram: MIA has a different meaning than KIA in terms of insurance. That is also, why the Ukrainian bodies are not recovered. Family members of MIA do not need to be compensated. Not only do they lay sea mines, as you yourself wrote in an article, they also mine roads, bridges, fields (before and after sowing), backyards, even a library. They occupy apartments… Read more »
