Doubt
Russia has raised doubt about the fact that the Tuzla spit is the territory of Ukraine, according to a statement by Russia's Foreign Minister Ihor Ivanov, Ukrainian News reported.

Documents
"There are various documents, which might be interpreted differently," he said hinting to the documents concluded by the Russian Soviet Socialist Republic and the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic concerning the ownership of the Tuzla spit.

Gibraltar
At this, Ivanov gave to journalists an example from the history of mutual relations between Spain and the United Kingdom, which recognizing the territorial integrity of each other, disputing have been disputing the ownership of Gibraltar for quite a long time.

Integral part
Ukraine's Foreign Minister Kostiantyn Hryscheno, in his turn, stated that at the talks held on Thursday, the Ukrainian side unequivocally stated that it considers the Tuzla spit as an integral part of Ukrainian territory.

Talks
According to earlier reports, while commenting on the results of talks with Yanukovych, Russia's prime minister Kasyanov stated at a news conference on Friday last week that Russia had agreed to suspend the construction of the dam in the Kerch Strait until resolution of this issue with the Ukrainian side, while Ukraine had consented to remove its border guards from the Tuzla spit. Later on Viktor Yanukovych clarified before the press that the issue of withdrawing border guards from Tuzla was raised by the Russian side in the course of the talks, and the Ukrainian side merely agreed to examine the proposal.
