"This vessel had a permission to fish within 12 nautical miles. They had no right to go beyond this border, therefore the captain of the ship alone is responsible for what happened because of their access to the inland territorial waters", - he said.
According to him, on the return of the ship's captain and crew members, a corresponding conversation will be held with them.
As previously reported, Russian border guards detained a Ukrainian fishing vessel (port of registration - Ochakiv) west of Cape Tarkhankut in the annexed Crimea.
