Ukraine and Russia set up a joint working group Tuesday to deal with the environmental disaster in the Black and Azov Seas.

According to reports of the Intefax-Ukraine news agency, the working group will be headquartered in the ports of Kerch, Ukraine, and Kavkaz, Russia.

The first meeting of working group will be held no later than Nov. 15, said a joint communique released after Ukrainian and Russian prime ministers Viktor Yanu kovich and Viktor Zubkov met in Anapa.

The working group would be responsible for cleaning up the oil spill after a tanker broke up in a heavy storm in the Kerch Strait.

It was reported that the Volgoneft-139 tanker released about 2,000 tons of oil into the waters. Local officials described it as an ecological catastrophe.
