Ukraine Says Russia Partially Unblocked Its Azov Sea Ports

Ukrainian Embassy in Nigeria condemns Russia’s seizure of ships

The rules of the pact say that countries that do not possess a coastline on the Black Sea are needed to offer Turkey atleast 15 days cognizance before altering the straits.

CNN has reported that the United States is making plans to sail a warship into the Black Sea, a move that comes with tensions remaining high between Ukraine and Russian Federation.

The notification will give the US Navy an option to enter the area, but it is not an indication that such action will be taken, the sources were quoted as saying in the report.

"And by Ukraine calling for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, and really the U.S. Sixth Fleet, to send more vessels into the Black Sea", says Maginnis, "is a confrontation that obviously Putin does not want because he wants to dominate the Black Sea".

The U.S. military has started the preparations to dispatch a warship into the Black Sea amid the tension between Russian Federation and Ukraine over the Kerch Strait incident, reported U.S. media on Wednesday. It is very important that the rule of law and worldwide norms were strictly adhered to, causing consequences for those countries that seek to undermine the right of other countries to their own national income.

After the five-day Russia-Georgia war in 2008, with Russian forces still encamped on a shore nearby, Washington anchored the flagship for the U.S. Sixth Fleet - the USS Mount Whitney - off Georgia's coast in a sign of support for the country. Russian jets have been shown regularly confronting, and shadowing, the surveillance planes.

Russian Federation rammed and fired on Ukrainian naval vessels, subsequently capturing three ships and detaining 24 service members.

From November 25 to the channel were 10 ships in ports and 16 out ports.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine has expressed its strong protest to the Russian Federation in connection with the armed attack and capture of the Ukrainian navy ships Berdyansk, Nikopol and the tug boat Yana Kapu and 23 crew members.

Under a 2003 treaty, Russian Federation and Ukraine agreed to share access to the Sea of Azov.

According to CNN, the last US ship to enter the Black Sea was the fast transport ship USNS Carson City in October.
