Foreign Ministry of Romania calls Ukraine to show restraint as regards status of Black Sea Island “Zmeiny” and not to create “artificial settlements” on it.

As radio “Deutsche Welle” reports, official Bucharest has reminded Kyiv that the status of Zmeiny is a disputable issue between two countries, and steps taken by Ukraine contradict norms of international law.

Moreover, the statement of Romania Foreign Ministry notes that attempts to create settlement on the island will not influence the process of delimitation of the continental shelf of Ukraine and Romania.

Last week the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine named the settlement on the Zmeiny Island as “Beliy.” According to the parliament’s resolution, the Beliy settlement will be included into the list of inhabited localities of Ukraine.
