Russian Federation to deploy new missiles to Crimea as Ukraine tensions rise

April FrancisNov 29, 2018

Later on the show, Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) said Trump should cancel the meeting, but if it does happen, Trump must be careful not to appear as Putin's "friend".

"Russia remains wrongly convinced that the reaction of the West isn't unified ... because in energy matters there is one stance and in defense matters there is another", he told Reuters, in reference to some European Union states such as Germany backing the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, increasing their reliance on Russian energy.

The Kremlin has steadily poured new military hardware into Crimea since it annexed it from Ukraine in 2014, turning the peninsula into what state-backed media have called a fortress. That fighting has killed at least 10,000 people since 2014 but eased somewhat with a 2015 truce.

Poroshenko asked Trump to tell the Russian president, according to NBC.

Putin's foreign affairs adviser, Yuri Ushakov, noted that the meeting, which is set for Saturday, has been prepared through official channels and Moscow expects Washington to notify it of any changes in the same way.

The Ukrainian parliament on Monday voted in favour of Poroshenko's request for the introduction of martial law in border areas for 30 days. "The current president immediately provokes the imposition of martial law, and this means only one thing - this means that the incident itself was provoked to impose martial law". "It was used as a pretext to introduce martial law".

Mr Putin also said the Ukrainian vessels violated the territorial waters off southern Russian Federation, which is the internationally recognised border.

Citing sources in Ukraine's ruling circles, Russia's Izvestia newspaper reported that Kiev had been trying to persuade Washington - so far unsuccessfully - to open a military base in Ukraine. He said yesterday that Russian tanks were massing on the country's border, but gave no further... "If they had done something differently, they should have been put on trial for that".

In Ukraine, Poroshenko warned that the clash at sea could herald more drastic developments in the simmering Ukraine-Russia military standoff. Speaking to reporters as smoke billowed from a nearby shooting range, the camouflage-clad Poroshenko pledged "not to allow the enemy to attack Ukraine" and announced a hike in salaries for military members.

Captured Ukrainian navy sailors are conveyed to Kiev district court of Simferopol, Crimea. All could be sentenced to six years in prison if convicted on border-violation charges.

The US State Department on Tuesday termed Russia's actions "a unsafe escalation" and said Washington wants to see "our European allies doing more to assist Ukraine". Earlier this week, Russian state television broadcast separate interviews with three of the seamen, who said the Russian coast guard repeatedly warned them that they were violating Russia's territorial waters and urged them to leave.
