Ukraine: Russian ships need permission to return

August 13, 2008 17:28

Ukraine's president says Russian navy ships that were deployed to the Georgian coast will need authorization to return to the base Russia leases from Ukraine. President Viktor Yushchenko's decree Wednesday requires Russia's Black Sea Fleet to submit a request to return to its base in the Crimea 10 working days before its planned return. The Russian navy squadron was deployed to Georgia's coast as part of Russia's onslaught on Georgia beginning last week. Yushchenko's announcement is certain to further strain ties between the Kremlin and pro-Western Ukrainian government.
