The Sea of ​​Okhotsk will become the inland sea of ​​Russia

The Governor of the Magadan region, Vladimir Pecheny, believes that the recognition of the enclave in the middle of the Sea of ​​Okhotsk as part of the Russian continental shelf will open up new prospects for the economy of the Magadan region and the entire Far East, the press service of the region reported.

15 March at the UN session will be the signing of an agreement on the Sea of ​​Okhotsk. After approval, the process of legally referring the enclave to the Russian continental shelf can be considered fully completed

The Magadan governor noted that "when Russian territory is not only a 200-mile zone, but the whole sea, we will get rid of poaching by foreign fishermen in our waters."

“The fishing of fish, crab, mollusks will be free to conduct anywhere in the Sea of ​​Okhotsk. Special permits of the frontier service will not be required both at sea and on return, ”he said.

According to the Governor, “The Sea of ​​Okhotsk is a real storeroom. 1,1 billion tons of oil and 2 trillion cubic meters of gas contain its subsoil. We will not discount the geopolitical interests of the state, ”added Pechenyi.
