Ukraine is its own deterrent. If you invade the Ukraine, you have the Ukraine. And who in God's name would want that?

Nothing untoward occurred. Norway has quite regularly shot hole in Russian trawlers.

If you want to cheese cut, then the border areas including parts that would give Russia land access to Crimea is quite valuable. Arguably even the rest of the black sea coast zone.

So if you meant that Russia should take that and leave a rump Ukraine, then sure.

Maybe Poland wants the North back too.

West is once again failing test set by Russian aggression

26 November 2018
Author(s):
Edward Lucas

Edward Lucas is Senior Vice President at the Centre for European Policy Analysis (www.cepa.org)

Imagine that it is 1 September 1939. German troops have just attacked Poland. Should the outside world a) call for calm b) denounce Hitler’s aggression c) help Poland?

Seen from a modern perspective, the answer is clear. Pre-war Poland, although far from perfect, was the innocent party in the dispute and protected by international defence agreements with Britain and France. Germany had a record of aggression. It would be absurd to ask both sides to de-escalate the conflict, when only one side is escalating it. Nor would it make sense to try to broker an agreement. German troops should withdraw from Poland; Germany should pay compensation for damage and injuries. Then we can try talking. The only real question, from today’s standpoint, is what kind of sanctions should be imposed on the Nazi regime in Berlin, and what kind of military assistance could practically be offered to Poland.

This framework is useful in assessing Russia’s attack on Ukraine in the Sea of Azov. At the time of writing, some details are still unclear. But the big picture is straightforward. Ukraine has the right to navigate freely through these waters, not only under international law, but under a treaty signed with Russia. The Kremlin, after months of escalating harassment and other mischief, blocked Ukraine’s access to the sea. Russian border patrol vessels fired on and seized three Ukrainian ships. Several crew members were wounded.

Blocking the Sea of Azov to Ukrainian ships is part of a bigger Russian plan. One element is to isolate the port of Mariupol, crippling the economy of Ukraine’s south-eastern region. It turns up the heat in Ukrainian politics. But more importantly, it is a diplomatic gambit. It tests not Ukraine’s resolve, but the West’s.

Here Russia has already enjoyed an easy win. Although some countries—notably Canada—responded with pitch-perfect words, straightforwardly condemning Russian aggression, others equivocated. Germany’s foreign minister, Heiko Mass, urged both sides to de-escalate. NATO and the European Union also mixed supportive words for Ukraine and criticism of Russia with calls for “restraint and de-escalation” (NATO secretary-general Jens Stoltenberg) and “the utmost restraint” (EU foreign affairs spokeswoman Maja Kocijančič).

Most worryingly of all (for us, and most pleasingly for Russia) there was no early response from the US. (The State Department did issue a routine condemnation of Russian aggression a few days earlier, in a statement marking the Holodomor).

It may get better. There is talk of more sanctions. In the US, Congress will have something to say, increasing the pressure on the administration. Russia has to explain itself at the UN Security Council. But this is probably too little, and certainly too late. The lesson is clear for the Kremlin. The West is divided and slow to react. It does not regard Ukraine as an ally. Instead it puts Europe’s biggest and bravest victim of Kremlin aggression on the same page as its tormentor.

The right response would have combined kinetic, symbolic and financial measures. A NATO naval flotilla in the Black Sea would pay a friendly visit to Mariupol. Bilateral military assistance to Ukraine would be stepped up. The EU would send its tongue-tied foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, to Kyiv. Western countries would announce a temporary ban on official and business visas for Russians. Countries like Britain would announce forthcoming legislation to restrict the rights of anonymously-owned “shell” companies to buy property or access the financial system. That would signal seriousness.

Russia’s ability to escalate and provoke should be no surprise to Western decisionmakers. Yet we fail the test time after time—and the bill is paid by our allies.

That is actually the precedent. Does an occupying power have rights and duties in the waters off the land it occupies?

I would give that a tentative yes. It does indeed have rights and duties in waters off the land it occupies.

This does not extend to blockading Maripol of course.

ST
Martial law is rather a big deal. Arresting ships and closing off a sea route is not such a big deal (though Russia would need to release them and open up navigation quickly as the big deal factor is a function of time).

We will see how it plays out. Arresting naval vessels indefinitely is an act of war as Aeros would say. As would a defacto blokade of Maripol be.

Yepp, every right to access the Sea of Azov (the ships got nowhere close and were arrested in occupied Ukrainian waters). But if you think an occupying power has duties and responsibilities, then ships using the occupied waters have to obey the instructions given by the occupying power.

The narrative here is that Russian had shut the passage short term due to security concerns. The passage is open again, so the short term holds.

In sum. We know Russia has occupied Crimea. It has duties and responsibilities that follow from that. Following instructions in the waters does in no way entail recognizing the Russian annexation (the occupation however is a fact).

SIMFEROPOL, November 25. /TASS/. Three Ukrainian warships have illegally crossed Russia’s state border entering its territorial waters, and are carrying out dangerous maneuvers, the Federal Security Service’s Border Service in Crimea said on Sunday.

"This morning at around 7:00 a.m. Moscow Time three ships of Ukraine’s Navy violated Articles 19 and 21 of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, which define the right of a coastal state to ensure maritime security, crossed the Russian state border and illegally entered the temporarily closed waters of the Russian territorial sea," the statement said.

The Ukrainian warships continue heading to the Kerch Strait, where the traffic is regulated under a schedule approved by the captain of the Russian sea port. A source in Crimea’s maritime authorities said the vessels are expected to reach the Kerch Strait in an hour and a half.

The Ukrainian warships are conducting dangerous maneuvers and are failing to meet the requirements, the Federal Security Service’s Border Department in Crimea said. "Until now the requests have not been sent in due order, the vessels have not been included in the schedule of passage. The vessels are carrying out dangerous maneuvers and are disobeying the Russian authorities’ demands," the statement said.

The Border Service is taking all steps to ensure security of navigation and regulation of maritime traffic in the waters of the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov and the Kerch Strait.

You mean aggressor. Its fine to have an opinion, but anarchy does not follow from an occupation. Russia has the right and duty to police the territories it occupies for example. Civic society has to be sustained.

If Russia was indeed rightless, then it would not have responsibilities either. For example, it would be under no obligation to allow shipping into the Sea of Azur (which in turn would bankrupt Ukraine even more. 25% of its exports leave from Maripol).

It would simply boil down to might making right.

Do you think that it is a tad bizarre that Russia is going to try Ukraine's seamen in a Russian court for "violating the waters" that Russia has taken from their country by force?

It seems to me that, at least, Russia should return the enlisted seamen to their country. They had nothing to say about which waters they operate in.

Especially when you consider Russia's character which makes me doubt that Ukraine's ships did anything wrong.

The Russian have let similar ships through for as long as they followed procedure (the passage is highly regulated by the responsible port authority. Which makes sense. Bottom conditions are spawned in hell and the waters are both shallow and shifty).

My point is that Crimea is occupied and the occupation does include the territorial waters. The outcome was hardly surprising and not following procedure is not something vessel masters would have done without instruction.

Ukrainians on the street view the incident as domestic politics. 4 local elections were just cancelled due to the declaration of martial law and the current president is up for election next year. He is running single digit approval ratings and is ranked 5 of 5 candidates (with 50% of those polled saying they would not vote for him under any circumstance).

The ships were seized in international waters after retreating jergul

And building a bridge across a straight that forces the transit of the straight through territorial waters and limits the size of the ships that may pass is incredibly dodgy.

Can you imagine the stink if the Turks did that to the bosphorous, building a bridge too low for the larger Russian cargo and war ships?

Russia doesn't consider itself an occupying power, having annexed it.

You seem to be bending over backwards over again to accommodate a favourable policy to Russia.
jergul

Fri Nov 30 13:44:51

Oh goodness.

It would not matter that the boats escaped to international waters if crimes were commited in territorial waters.

The bridge was originally a joint Russian-Ukrainian venture. Passage is within territorial waters of either Ukraine (occupied) or Russia because the straight is very narrow. The bridge had a tanker parked under it. 35 m clearance is substantial ( http://www...gationCharts/ILW/AppendixB.pdf ).

Russia is an occupying power. Fact. Unless you want to recognize the annexation. Pretending the occupation does not exist is anti-factual.

What favourable policies are on any Western tables?

The incident should be viewed in its proper context. Russia has already been penalized for occupying Crimea. Its management of Crimean territorial waters are part of that occupation.

Now, its fine to slap on more sanctions on Russia.

But you should be careful in letting Ukraine dictate the narrative. Where do you think it will stop provocative measures if they lead to anti-Russian reactions.

Or you better be willing to put troops on the ground if you feel following the Ukraines lead is the thing to do.

What crimes, exactly?

The Russians have accused them of entering Russian waters. (Waters that are not recognised as Russian).

The Russians appear to accept that the Ukrainians had informed them of the transit to the sea of azov, which is shared, but that this wasn't with enough notice (though as I understand it there is no stipulation on what is required in terms of notice).

So at best this looks procedural.

They then left.

And then the Russians later pursued then into international waters and sized the vessels, and injured the crew.

The "nonsense" could easily have been avoided if the UK government had been more forthcoming, transparent, and credible.

You are the one that brought up narratives so it's germane to examine your appalling track record.

"The "nonsense" could easily have been avoided if the UK government had been more forthcoming, transparent, and credible."

Many people thought the UK's case credible. Credibility is in the eye of the beholder and the fact you concluded it as not-credible, only to eventually have to reverse your position as more and more information came into the public domain is precisely the point here.

For some reason you have a tendency to assign higher credibility to Russian claims than is really sensible.

"But the clear big deal is not heaving to when ordered to stop."

They did leave however, as they were seized in international waters, using force.

"Are you at all doubting this was a planned political provocation?"

I am deeply skeptical of that (if you mean by the Ukrainians) particularly given the footage of events and recording of Russians indicating the reverse. It could equally have been a Russian ambush of a pre-notified transit of a straight which Ukraine and Russia have previously agreed joint access through.

But it is good to know that treaties of this nature are so easily viable, and that Turkish ships back by Nato can seize Russian ships on international water should they ignore a Turksih warning to not transit.

"Be very careful of following Ukraine's lead. Its current leadership has absolutely nothing to lose."

I used the word "narrative" to cover what the Russians were saying without committing to making a value statement its merits.

Many people voted for Trump. My point was lack of transparency made its statements impossible to gauge on their merits. And there is a track record of spurious beleifs presented as absolute fact.

Norway arrest ships in its economic zone all the time. And it has put shots through the bows of Russian vessels in "international waters" in recent history. Anti-piracy efforts take place in international waters. They are not the sanctuary you think they are.

Ships should be arrested if they attempt to pass the straits when instructed by Turkish authorities not to do so.

Case in point: If you believe Russia is occupying Crimea, then Ukrainian vessels should have followed Russian instructions.

I have no doubt that Russia can be obtuse in terms of transit at times. But the trigger for the incident was Ukraine not following instructions.

That was pretty clearly on instructions from shore. So, yah, a provocation.

Of course not. Nor is the strait closed to Ukrainian shipping. It can however regulate passage and shipping must abide by those regulations.

This is not uncharted waters. Thankfully, we have Israel.

Occupation comes with rights, duties and responsibilities. The correct response is boycotts and a degree of political isolation.

Honoured more by breech in the case of Israel, but I had formulated what I think is appropriate policy decades ago.

That I know tons about maritime practice and practical law is just a bonus in this context (though of course it also applies to Israel's management of the waters off Gaza).

The difference would be between directions from traffic police and the highway being blown up.

Russia is being outragous, but that is in regards to charging seamen with criminal offences. It is generally understood that the shipowner is held responsible, not employees acting on its behalf.

The correct response would be a hefty fine with the ships held in arrest until the fine was paid.

The Ukrainian FSB fellows are a different case as they are not crew. I would have framed that as if the FSB had chartered the vessels for purposes of responsibility.

Meaning that land rules would apply to the FSB fellows.

Its not rocket science seb. The rules were designed while barbary pirates were still a concern. Elaborated on, sure. But the basic principles are quite old and design to deal with all manner of ruffian behavior.
