Russia's naval ban on three Ukrainian vessels attempting to pass the Kerch Strait shows that Moscow will continue its policy of destabilizing and undermining Ukraine for both domestic and strategic reasons. But the significant worsening of the dispute between Russia and Ukraine seems doubtful at present. This analysis does not represent neither Western, Ukrainian nor Russian official views on the Kerch Strait incident and its legal background. It is a graduate student analysis that focuses on reality. It is not the aim of the analysis to provide "politically correct" views.
