Russia has granted consent to the date and venue of negotiations on the functioning of its Black Sea Fleet on the territory of Ukraine, the Russian Embassy press service reported.

The negotiations were initiated by Ukraine with the official delivery to Russia of technological patterns for border and other kinds of control of the fleet personnel and equipment.

Ukrainian Foreign Affairs Ministry spokesman Leonid Osavoliuk explained to Russian embassy counselor Vsevolod Loskutov the mechanism of that control, calling for steady observance of the procedure by the BSF.

The procedure reinstated by the recent presidential decrees and government resolutions for Ukrainian border crossing by the Russian fleet was introduced back in 1999 and abolished three weeks after introduction. In 2000, it was replaced with the notification rules effective until recently.
