The official position of Moscow on territorial waters was expressed by the spokesperson of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Maria Zakharova, which was published by the Russian embassy in Greece on its official website.

Zakharova recalled that Russia had signed the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, the Article 3 of which stipulates that “every state has the right to determine the extent of its territorial waters up to a limit not exceeding 12 nautical miles”.

However, the Russian ministry spokeswoman said “in some cases, countries, for one reason or another, define a narrower territorial sea” and when a territorial sea has to be demarcated between neighboring states, this issue must be addressed in accordance with international law.

In fact, Zakharova states that “the leadership of the Hellenic Republic is well aware of Russia’s opinion on this issue”.
