  • Russian President Vladimir Putin has defend Russia's actions in seizing Ukrainian ships

In a meeting with security officials, Poroshenko said the ban targeting men between the ages of 16 and 60 should prevent Russian servicemen disguised as civilians from sneaking into the country as they did in Ukraine's east, where Moscow backed the separatist insurgency with troops and weapons in a conflict that has left more than 10,000 people dead.

Why is control of the Kerch Strait any of our business? They ignored legitimate demands to stop issued by vessels belonging to the FSB Border Service and the Black Sea Fleet and continued maneuvering dangerously.

The use of the Russian fighter jet and the helicopter was not previously reported. The Berdyansk's crew was lucky to survive unscathed.

The crew members were then captured - 24 in total - and have now been given two months in pre-trial detention. Moreover, these vessels are equipped with a 30-millimeter automatic gun, a grenade launcher and laser-guided Ukrainian-made Baryer-VK anti-tank missiles. Ukraine began building these gunships as a cheap alternative after 2014, when it lost nearly its entire fleet during the annexation of Crimea.

The Russian church has severed its links with Bartholomew I to protest granting independence to the Ukrainian church.

"After Crimea and Donbass, the Azov sea is becoming Ukraine's third front line which could destabilise Ukranian-Russia relations but also Europe security as a whole".

"It's important that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and the United States speak with one voice".

The incident at sea last weekend was the first open military confrontation between Kiev and Moscow since Russia's annexation of Crimea in 2014. Although, those Ukrainian vessels could still play a vital role in guarding this base against Russian commando infiltration.

Air raids hit insurgent areas west of Syria's Aleppo, says monitor
On Twitter he wrote that "the regime and its allies are using this as an excuse to launch a military operation in north Syria". Earlier Saturday, government shelling of a rebel-held area in neighbouring Idlib province killed at least seven civilians.

In 2014, after the pro-Russian regime in Kiev was ousted in a coup, and a pro-NATO regime installed with USA backing, Putin detached and annexed Crimea, for centuries the homeport of Russia's Black Sea fleet. The Kremlin insists this would be an extremely negative development (Interfax, November 29).

But he says the Russians don't come to this area of the Azov.

It also "urges members of the global community to unite in opposition to the actions of the Government of the Russian Federation in the Kerch Strait, as they infringe upon fundamental principles of worldwide law affecting all nations". These corvettes have been shooting Kalibr missiles at Syria from the Caspian and from the Mediterranean. Two angry states are poking and probing at the flammable edges of an extended war zone, each acting in what it believes is a controlled fashion with little risk of escalation, but each ready to risk the next step if the price of retreat seems too high.

The fear of a Western-led conspiracy against vital Russian interests in the Black and Azov seas may explain the extreme Russian reaction.

The upper chamber approved the resolution by unanimous consent late Thursday, hours after Trump announced on Twitter he was canceling a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin that had been scheduled for Saturday in Buenos Aires.

Earlier this week, Ukraine imposed martial law and limited its own citizens' travel to Crimea, the peninsula controversially annexed by Russian Federation four years ago.

Earlier, in a move applauded in Kiev, U.S. President Donald Trump called off a meeting with Russia's Vladimir Putin in Argentina to signal Washington's disapproval of Russian behavior in the naval clash with Ukraine. They have been taken from Crimea to Moscow.
