So-called plenipotentiary representative of Russian President in Crimea Oleg Belaventsev said at a meeting of the Marine Board under the Government of the Russian Federation chaired by Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin in occupied Sevastopol April 1, Censor.NET reports citing Krym.Realii.
"We need to take additional measures to ensure maritime security of Crimea's gas industry, its gas transportation system. I'm talking about Chernomorneftegaz. I believe that the Black Sea Fleet and the border guards know what to do since we have been witnessing frequent provocations against rigs lately," Belaventsev said.
It should be reminded that Naftohaz of Ukraine SE was the sole owner of Chornomornaftohaz before the occupation of Crimea. The Kremlin puppets had held a so-called "nationalization" of the enterprise, which was later renamed to Chernomorneftegaz.
