Lavrov thinks that Kiev's provocation at Kerch as an attempt to solve internal problems

Kiev’s provocation in the Kerch Strait was staged in an attempt to settle internal problems of Ukraine, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said after talks with his Swiss counterpart Ignazio Cassis.

"Our friends were interested to learn about the incident in the Black Sea, not in the Sea of Azov, when Ukrainian naval ships attempted to enter the Kerch-Yenikale Canal in violation of safety regulations in effect," the Russian diplomat said.

"We drew attention of our colleagues to the documents that were made public after Russian border guards had inspected the non-compliant ships, from where it follows that it was a premeditated provocation with an eye to a scandal, with a view to achieving geopolitical goals and solving internal problems facing the Kiev regime," the foreign minister added.
