The State Hydrographic Service Ukraine compiles, produces and updates the complete national portfolio of the sea navigational charts for the zone under Ukrainian jurisdiction.

Meanwhile, the Russian Federation also produces and distributes its own electronic navigational charts for the sea areas adjacent to the coast of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea in the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov, and the Ukrainian Coast of the Sea of Azov, in violation of all international rules, standards and norms. The action of the kind from the side of the aggressor country have already caused the ENC duplication between the Russian and Ukrainian ENCs and so, caused some threatens to navigation, while the very duplication could cause the unpredictable behavior of the shipborne digital navigational equipment and even the ship collision. There have been already thirty-two cases of such duplication detected.

Mr Bohdan Ustymenko, Principal Deputy Head of the SHSU, said that “We have already successfully insisted on termination of the RENC PRIMAR distribution and selling of the Russian charts that one hundred per cent covering the Ukrainian territorial waters. At the very moment, exercising all reasonable and available options, we are going to insist on the British RENC IC-ENC termination of the Russian charts for the Ukrainian waters. Another very important stage in the SHSU countermeasures against the Russian aggression is declaration by Ukraine the specially restricted sea area aiming to prohibit the ship calls in each and every Crimean sea ports and curb the Russian Federation illegal activity within the territorial waters of Ukraine around the Crimean Peninsula.”
