Turkey will five times increase the price for passage through the Bosphorus and Dardanelles according to the rights granted to it by the Montreux Convention, they write “RIA Novosti” with reference to the Sabah newspaper.

“The payment system at the rate was abolished, which was fixed at a 75 percent discount in 1983. With the elimination of 39 years of victimization, annual income will rise to $200 million.

It is also noted that with the entry into force on October 7, 2022 of the new conditions, the fee for the lighthouse, evacuation and medical care in the passages through the straits will increase five times.

The Montreux Convention was adopted in 1936. It retains freedom of movement for merchant ships through the straits in peacetime and wartime, but establishes different navigation regimes. At the same time, the document limits the stay in the Black Sea of ​​warships of non-Black Sea states to three weeks. In emergency situations, Turkey may prohibit or restrict the passage of the military through the Bosphorus and the Dardanelles.

According to the agreement, Turkey has the right to charge for lighthouses, evacuation and medical care from ships passing through the straits.
