MOSCOW, February 13 (RAPSI) – The Moscow City Court on Wednesday dismissed appeals of four more Ukrainian sailors charged with illegal crossing of Russian borders against extension of their detention until April 24, RAPSI learnt in the court’s press service.

Appeals have been lodged by Yury Budzylo, Yury Bezyazychny, Sergey Chulib and Bogdan Nebylitsyn.

Earlier this month, the court upheld extension of other eight sailors’ detention for two months.

On November 25, Russian border guard officers had to engage a weapon to stop unwarranted maneuvers of three Ukrainian ships in Russia’s territorial waters in the area of Kerch Strait. The ships were seized while 24 crew members were arrested. Three sailors were wounded.

Simferopol and Kerch courts ruled the sailors be detained. On November 30, all of them were transferred to Moscow.
