Poland refuses to let the Russian sailing ship "Sedov" enter its ports

By the decision of Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, Poland refused to allow the Russian "Siedów" sailing ship to enter the territorial waters of Poland. 

Earlier, the sailing ship "Sedov" was not allowed by the authorities of Estonia to enter the territorial waters of this country and took the course toward the port of Gdynia.

According to Estonian diplomacy, students from the Kerch State Maritime University of Technology from the occupied Crimea are on board the sailing ship. "Estonia does not recognize the illegal annexation of Crimea and, in our opinion, issuing a permit for a school vessel would contradict the policy of not recognizing the annexation of Crimea" - said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Estonia.
