Serhiy Hrynevetskyi, Head of the Odessa Regional State University of Internal Affairs, addressed the participants of the International Scientific Conference “Maritime Security of the Baltic-Black Sea Region: Challenges and Threats” held today at Odessa State University of Internal Affairs and stated its importance because of the role of the maritime sector in Ukraine’s economy:
“Today, the Ukrainian maritime industry has to work in more difficult conditions of temporary occupation of Crimea and the exclusive maritime economic zone around it, the war in eastern Ukraine, restrictions on shipping in the Black and Azov Seas and the Kerch Strait. trade».
“Over the past year, we have seen a significant deterioration in the security situation in the Black Sea-Azov region. The growing militarization of Crimea, the increase of the Russian Black Sea Fleet’s strike and landing capabilities, large-scale military exercises to test the passage of Russian warships from other seas to the Black Sea, and the closure of large shipping areas by the Russian Federation all create tensions and threats.
Therefore, maritime safety issues must be constantly in the center of state attention. A positive moment is the completion of work on the Maritime Security Strategy, which I hope will be approved by the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine in the near future, “Serhiy Hrynevetsky added.
After welcoming speeches by Ukrainian and foreign partners of the event, the conference participants presented their reports on topical issues of various areas of maritime security in the Baltic-Black Sea region.
