Russian Federation jails nine more Ukrainian sailors

  • Donald and Melania Trump board Air Force One to traveling to Argentina to attend the G20 summit. Trump abruptly canceled a planned meeting with Vladimir Putin registering his disapproval of Russia's treatment of Ukraine and casting new uncertainty

But in an interview with The Washington Post, Trump said, "Maybe I won't have the meeting".

In Crimea, nine of the captured Ukrainian seamen were expected to face court hearings in the regional capital of Simferopol later Wednesday.

The tension between Ukraine and Russia reached a new low this week after the Russian border patrol blocked the route of three Ukrainian military vessels travelling from the Black Sea to the Sea of Azov through the Kerch Strait - the shared internal waters of both states according to their 2003 agreement.

Ukraine has also blamed the Kremlin for separatist violence in eastern Ukraine, near the border with Russian Federation.

"It is completely obvious that if Ukraine, either by itself or with the help of its allies, somehow tries to resolve issues by military means, this will all turn into a military defeat".

Mr Poroshenko has declared martial law for 30 days in response to the crisis.

Ushakov, Putin's aide, said that the naval encounter between Russian Federation and Ukraine likely will be on the agenda of the planned meeting, which will start with the two presidents meeting privately before being joined by senior officials.

President Putin has lashed at Ukraine over its imposition of martial law, depicting it as a cynical pre-election ploy by the country's unpopular president while also mocking western countries over their "short-sighted" support for Kiev.

The incident was the first major confrontation at sea in the long-running conflict pitting Ukraine against Moscow and Russian-backed separatists in the country's east.

"We had information that after this provocation Russian regular forces could go for more aggressive actions against Ukraine.This is why Ukraine's authorities made a decision to impose martial law", Parubiy says.

A court in Crimea on Tuesday ordered 12 of the 24 Ukrainian seamen held in custody.

"Russia wants to consolidate its illegal annexation of Crimea and annex the Sea of Azov... and seems to hope that the worldwide community will simply acquiesce and accept this new reality".

Poroshenko said it was necessary because of intelligence about "a highly serious threat of a ground operation against Ukraine".

Kudlow said the administration has been "extremely disappointed" by China's engagement in trade talks but the meeting between Trump and Xi on the sidelines of the G-20 summit could be a game-changer.

Ukrainian sailors did not react to the warnings of border guards.

"This is no way for a law-abiding civilized nation to act", Haley said at a Monday emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council.

Volker said he has not received independent US verification of Ukraine's information, but believed "the data the Ukrainians have provided is quite clear".

Ukraine said its ships did nothing wrong and have every right to use the strait without Russian permission.

"Europe shouldn't like that aggression, and Germany shouldn't like that aggression", Trump said.

One more of the systems would be joining three others already deployed in Crimea, they said.
