The Foreign Ministry of Ukraine stated that Tuzla island being Ukrainian territory has never been questioned in the course of negotiations on the border delimitation with Russia.
He added that during the negotiations between the Presidents of Ukraine and Russia concluded on Thursday, the maritime delimitation issue was discussed only, namely the limits of the Azov and Black Seas and the Kerch Strait.
In addition, the parties agreed on the exploitation order of the Kerch Strait.
However, the details of these agreements have not been yet reported to the FM of Ukraine.
The President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych and the Russian President Vladimir Putin signed the Joint Statement on Maritime Delimitation in the Black and Azov Seas and in the Kerch Strait, which notes that "the parties believe it is important to carry out the delimitation of maritime spaces in the Azov and Black Seas, as well as in the Kerch Strait in the spirit of friendship, good neighborliness and strategic partnership, taking into account the legitimate interests of both countries."
Putin stated that the Ukrainian and Russian governments are to agree on legal details and then to sign the agreement on delimitation of the Azov-Black Sea basin.
In turn, the Russian party was not satisfied with this approach, and urged that that administrative boundary existed on maps only visually and that division did not have any legal grounds.
