Russia won’t let Ukraine stage new provocations in the Kerch Strait and is carrying out the necessary diplomatic effort, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told the Bolshaya Igra (Big Game) program on Channel One.

Earlier on Thursday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Ukraine’s authorities were preparing another provocation in the Kerch Strait and were trying to involve NATO countries into it.

In comment on Moscow’s reaction to a possible provocation by Kiev, Zakharova said: "The Russian leadership has given its response. First, by the steps taken when the first provocation was carried out and second, by explaining that these provocations won’t be allowed."

According to the diplomat, the Foreign Ministry is carrying out a diplomatic effort on preventing such incidents. In particular, Lavrov drew attention to this issue at bilateral meetings during the Munich Security Conference held on February 15-17.
