KIEV, August 21 (RIA Novosti) - Ukraine's Defense Minister Yuriy Yekhanurov signed instructions Thursday to implement an earlier presidential decree complicating the rules of deployment for Russia's Black Sea fleet.

President Viktor Yushchenko signed a decree last week requiring Russia to notify the Ukrainian authorities of all movements by naval vessels and aircraft from its Crimea-based Black Sea Fleet.

Under the Defense Ministry instructions, the first deputy chief of Ukraine's General Staff will be made responsible for the coordination of moves of the Black Sea fleet's units outside of places of their deployment.

The instructions will come into effect once they are registered with Ukraine's Justice Ministry.

Ships from Russia's Black Sea Fleet patrolled the waters off the Georgian coast during Russia's "peace enforcement" operation that began after Georgia launched an offensive in breakaway South Ossetia on August 8.
