MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 08th December, 2018) The number of ships heading to Russian ports via the Kerch Strait that Russian border guards have inspected from April 1 to December 1 exceeds the number of ships heading to Ukrainian ports that have been inspected, Alexei Volsky, the first deputy head of the Russian Security Service's (FSB) coast guard department, said on Saturday.

"A total of 18,783 vessels have gone through the Kerch Strait between April 1 and December 1, 2018. A total of 2,052 vessels have been inspected before they entered the Kerch-Yenikale Canal.
