US Braces To Sail Warship Into Black Sea Amidst Russia Ukraine Conflict

Klimkin hinted that at least one NATO member was ready to enhance its presence in the Black Sea

Ukraine's president is begging North Atlantic Treaty Organisation to dispatch ships to the area after a confrontation in which the Russian coast guard fired on and seized three Ukrainian vessels and their crews that sought to pass from the Black Sea into the Sea of Azov.

Ukrainian ports of the Azov sea reduced the turnover more than doubled, forced to go on four-day working week and reduce staff.

Relations between the two countries have been strained since the crisis began in eastern Ukraine in 20-14 and Crimea re-joined Russian Federation following a referendum the same year.

In a statement by the Embassy of Ukraine in Nigeria, Mykola Yaremchuk, first secretary of the Embassy of Ukraine said the attack on the ships was carried out during a sea crossing from the port of Odessa to the port of Mariupol, in accordance with the provisions of all effective multilateral and bilateral worldwide treaties and navigation rules. Russian Federation has approximately 2,800 vessels and 25,000 personnel in the area.

The U.S. and its allies have condemned what they described as unjustified use of force by Russian Federation and urged it to release the ships and their crews.

The United States has called on Russian Federation to release the sailors and return the seized vessels to Ukraine. However, since the 2014 annexation, and the completion of the Kerch bridge earlier this year, Russian Federation has slowly restricted access for Ukrainian ships. Ukraine imposed martial law for 30 days in several regions around the country in response, and has barred entry to male Russian nationals aged 16 to 60 for the duration of the state of emergency.

Poroshenko met Tuesday with families of Ukrainian sailors captured by Moscow, vowing to do everything in his power to bring them home.

"All of Ukraine is now proud of your loved ones", he said during the emotional meeting in his office, hugging the captives' family members, some teary-eyed.

Ukrainian prosecutors accused Savchenko of plotting a coup in collusion with Russia-backed rebels, and she was taken into custody in March after the parliament stripped her of her immunity.

Poroshenko insisted that the seamen's detention was illegal.
