Troops sent to Russian border as tensions rise

So for example boosting North Atlantic Treaty Organisation military presence in the port of Constanta in Romania would to my mind be a very useful step that would both boost North Atlantic Treaty Organisation defence and deterrence and also provide Russian Federation with a clear outcome for its aggressive action in Crimea and now in the sea of Azov as well.

"We have also discussed the need to put an end to the Nord Stream 2, and that it would be the most suitable sanction for Russian Federation".

The global Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF) has, he said, helped to manage the relationship and avoid such "incidents".

Of similar concern to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation is Russia's new SSC8 missile system.

Russian Federation plans to award medals to the border guards who fired on and seized Ukrainian sailors and ships during last week's confrontation in the Black Sea.

Omelyan's remarks came a day after NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg demanded that Russian Federation "allow freedom of navigation and unhindered access to Ukrainian ports in the Sea of Azov".

According to the statement, 17 ships are waiting at the exit of the Azov Sea, and another nine are at berths in the ports.

Though the substance of Trump's conversation with Putin on Friday was not detailed by the White House, Putin said that it had to do with the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict.

Her meeting with Putin in Argentina took place a week after Russian Federation seized three Ukrainian ships and 24 crew members in a clash in the Kerch Strait, an important shipping channel that links the Sea of Azov and the Black Sea.

President Vladimir Putin may be seeking to maximise his gains in the Black Sea region at a time when Washington is preoccupied with China and Iran, and when Europe is fragmenting politically and economically.

What objections can be made if it is directly written in the register of a ship that such boats are tasked with secretly entering our territorial waters and thus crossing the Kerch Strait?, Putin asked.

The vessels and the crews were captured.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko responded to the standoff by introducing martial law for 30 days, something Ukraine hadn't done even after Crimea's annexation and amid large-scale fighting with Russia-backed separatists in the east in 2014-2015.

More than 9,500 Ukrainian armed forces personnel have been trained by British troops since the start of 2015.

Ukraine says Russian Federation has purposely held up its ships to choke its Azov Sea ports of Mariupol and Berdyansk, from which metals and agricultural goods are exported.

Amid the tensions, the Russian military said its forces in occupied Crimea were conducting drills involving Bal and Bastion long-range anti-ship missile systems. "It is mobile and hard to detect".

They have a nuclear capability and could reach European cities "within minutes and with little or no warning".

The United States, also keen to export gas to Europe, argues that the pipeline will harm Ukraine's economic interests and leave Germany dependent on Russian Federation for decades to come.

He told reporters: "We will address Russian Federation destabilising behaviour".
