Ukraine: We have spies on the ships that Russian Federation seized

Ukrainian navy accuses Russia of seizing three ships after allegedly firing on them near Crimea

Russian forces boarded and captured the ships on Sunday, with Moscow accusing the vessels of illegally entering Russian waters off the coast of Crimea in the Sea of Azov.

A Russian ship has opened fire on Ukrainian naval vessels in the Black Sea following a tense stand-off off the coast of the Crimean Peninsula, the Ukrainian navy has claimed. They accused him of fearmongering in order to delay or at least reconfigure the March 31 election that he had seemed certain to lose.

The injured officer was a member of Ukraine's military counterintelligence office.

It clearly shows that the Russian ship did not change course as it bears down on the Ukrainian tugboat, apparently deliberately ramming the tugboat.

The confrontation at sea raised fears of a wider military flareup. In a brief statement Monday afternoon, he told reporters: "We do not like what's happening, either way, we don't like what's happening and hopefully it will get straightened out".

"I know those sailors from Nikopol". They are working on it, too.

"It's not a political issue here, because we can have an argument about the legal status, but it's about simply concentrating on protecting them and helping them", Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin told the AP. Moscow says Ukraine deliberately provoked Russian Federation to trigger a crisis.

The clash comes as Ukrainian forces are fighting Russia-backed separatists in eastern Ukraine in a conflict that has killed more than 10,300 people since April 2014. Since 2014, all Allies have condemned Russia's aggressive actions in Crimea and Eastern Ukraine.

Critics nonetheless remained unconvinced, warning that the measure was a threat to democracy and noting that even during far more serious moments during the four-year conflict with Russia, Ukraine had never previously needed to impose martial law.

"He underlined that the introduction of martial law will not hinder the working of the democratic institutions of Ukraine, and will not create any problems for the upcoming presidential election", Stoltenberg said.

Yelchenko said he has recordings of radio traffic showing how the Russian military planned and carried out the seizures.

Moscow blamed Kiev for the incident, with Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov saying: "The Russian side acted strictly within both domestic and global law". The attack on the naval vessels near the shared waterway, the Kerch Strait, represented a new stage of aggression in what he called Russia's "hybrid war" against Ukraine.

Kneissl said it was "one side's account versus the other's" in the latest tensions, in which Kiev declared martial law in response to Moscow's seizure of three of its navy vessels. The FSB alleges that the Ukrainian side did not file an application for passage and its boats were not included in the timetable for navigation through the Kerch Strait. Kiev, Ukraine's capital, claims that it gave the Russians advance notice that its ships would be in the area. Similar clips were released by Russian state media but those did not show the actual collision. The FSB said only three had suffered non-life threatening injuries and were given medical treatment.

It comes as a Crimea court ordered three of the 24 Ukrainians captured on Sunday to be detained for two months.

Sunday's incident has been playing out on Russian and Ukrainian television screens, with dramatic footage of Russian ships chasing down a Ukrainian tugboat that was trying to pass through the Kerch Strait from the Black Sea into the Sea of Azov. Russian authorities must return Ukrainian sailors, vessels & refrain from further provocations.
