Russia,Ukrainian ships,Crimea

According to the Ukrainian navy, "the occupiers' dispatch service refuses to ensure the right to freedom of navigation, guaranteed by worldwide agreements". "[The Russians] shoot to kill", the press service of Ukraine's Navy said on Facebook at 20:28 local time on November 25.

Kiev said the "openly aggressive actions" took place as three of its vessels sailed from the Black Sea port of Odessa to Mariupol in the Sea of Azov.

Earlier in the day, Ukrainian military vessels crossed the Russian sea border, entered the temporarily-closed area of Russian territorial waters and were moving from the Black Sea toward the Kerch Strait, according to FSB.

"The Russian Federation has once again demonstrated its aggressive nature and complete neglect of the norms of worldwide law", the Navy said, referring to a treaty from 2003 which guarantees free passage through the Kerch Strait for Ukrainian and Russian vessels.

The Kerch bridge is seen blocked for ships entrance, near Kerch, Crimea, Sunday, Nov. 25, 2018.

MOSCOW-Russia and Ukraine traded accusations over an incident at sea Sunday near the disputed Crimean Peninsula, increasing tensions between both countries and prompting Moscow to block passage through the Kerch Strait.

One vessel was hit by the strikes, injuring a crew member, the Ukrainian navy said.

It said in a statement that Russian border guard vessels had tried to stop the small flotilla by ramming the tugboat, causing minor damage to it in an incident it said showed Russia was behaving aggressively and illegally.

It said one small-sized Ukrainian armored artillery boat was damaged and was "dead in the water".

"The ships of the Ukrainian Navy continue to perform tasks in compliance with all norms of global law", the Ukrainian Navy said in a statement said.

Kyiv said Moscow had violated the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea and the contract between Kiev and Moscow on the use of the Sea of Azov and the Kerch Strait.

Still on the subject: Russian Federation captured Ukrainian naval vessels in Black Sea.

It said Ukraine's ships were carrying out "provocative actions" and "their aim is clear - to create a conflict situation in this region".

"Such things are not carried out without the head of state's knowledge, consent, and - I think - initiative", Pushkov told Russia's state-run Rossia 24 TV channel.
