 Sailors will return Crimea and naval bases on Black Sea to Ukraine, - Parubii

Verkhovna Rada Chairman Andrii Parubii congratulated the sailors on the occasion of the Day of the Naval Forces of Ukraine.

Censor.NET reports citing the website of the Parliament.

"The marine and the national blue and yellow Ukrainian flags were hoisted on the ships of the Black Sea Fleet on April 29, 1918 for the first time in the modern history of Ukraine. After the annexation of the Crimea in spring of 2014, the Day of the Naval Forces of Ukraine has acquired a new meaning. I am convinced that Ukrainian sailors will return Crimea and our naval bases on the Black Sea to Ukraine," he said.

"Ukraine has always been, is and will be a sea state. Ukrainian sailors are a model of courage, patriotism and professionalism," Parubii added.
