Russian frigate forbidden to enter German waters

June 3, 2014 at 09:16 by Svitlana Slavina in General

Due to the Ukrainian crisis Russian sailing ships do not receive a permission to come into German ports.

The Russian frigate BOIKY did not get a permit from the German authorities to enter the port of Kiel and thus cannot participate in the annual sailing event in Kiel - the Kiel Regatta, this year.

Generally, the naval vessels need a diplomatic clearance from the Federal Foreign Office to enter the German territorial waters. The Russian naval applied for this clearance for the BOIKY to be allowed to come into the German territorial waters. As the military collaboration between EU, Nato and Russia is currently set out, the Russian application was declined.

Now, the participation of the Russian legendary barks SEDOV and KRUZENSHTERN in the annual German Hanse Sail 2014 has been also placed in doubt. These barks belong to the main attractions at the Hanse Sail in Rostock, which is one of the largest maritime festivals in Europe. Further negotiations will show the out coming for this important maritime event.
