Jailed Ukrainian sailors moved to Moscow

The Ukrainian president, Petro Poroshenko, tweeted that the latest measure was created to prevent Russia from forming units of "private" armies, "which in reality are representatives of the armed forces of the Russian Federation", on Ukrainian soil.

President Vladimir Putin insisted Wednesday that Russian forces were in the right to seize three Ukrainian ships last weekend, but President Donald Trump expressed "deep concern" at Moscow's actions against a United States ally.

Russian soldiers were active in Crimea before the peninsula was annexed by Russia in 2014.

The Ukrainian president is urging North Atlantic Treaty Organisation to deploy naval ships to the Sea of Azov amid a standoff with Russian Federation.

For now, Ukrainian officials say, Russia's measures extend to simply limiting traffic in and out of the sea.

"We need to rebuff the aggressor at any moment", Poroshenko told troops, according to a statement on his website.

It was not clear whether Merkel knew of Poroshenko's call for NATO's deployment when she spoke.

The Kremlin said it has not been notified of a cancellation. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov insisted traffic is flowing normally through the strait and suggested the Ukrainian ships ran afoul of bad weather.

Canada could also use this week's G20 meeting in Argentina to advance that line of response, Shevchenko said. Trump cited Russia's failure to return Ukrainian ships and sailors it seized on Sunday.

"Russian President Putin wants nothing less but to occupy the sea", he said.

"The only language he [Putin] understands is the solidarity of the Western world", Poroshenko stressed, calling for fresh sanctions on Moscow. Mr Putin said Wednesday.

Forest Service releases video of gender reveal explosion that caused wildfire

Kiev authorities have chose to turn away all Russian men aged 16 to 60. "They can get away with whatever they do".

Poroshenko's introduction of martial law has been met with criticism in Ukraine, where some lawmakers and rights campaigners have called it a threat to democracy, alleging it's an effort to help the president ahead of elections in March, which he's now expected to lose.

Ukraine's Ministry of Infrastructure says Russian Federation has blocked 35 merchant ships from leaving or entering the Sea of Azov since Wednesday.

He told Bild newspaper in an interview published Thursday that there needs to be increased pressure on Moscow, including stopping the construction of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, which is being built under the Baltic Sea and would bypass Ukraine to deliver gas directly to Germany.

Pavlo said, however, he will not recognize a new Ukrainian church.

Moscow's Black Sea Fleet is based in the city of Sevastopol and after the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, Ukraine allowed Russian Federation to continue its naval operations there.

Zakharova concluded that martial law "endangers predominantly Russian-speaking regions, where most people never supported the current authorities, as opinion polls show".

Ukraine gained independence after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991.

The Crisis began after Russian Navy vessels attacked Ukrainian ships off the coast of Crimea.

"Those who have such opportunities could help by exerting influence on the Ukrainian authorities", Peskov said.
