    Russian border guard ships openly carry out aggressive actions against Ukrainian Navy ships

    As at 22.20

    According to information, "Berdyansk" boat and "Jana Kapu" tug are seized and towed . "Nikopol" boat is blocked and moves escorted by Russian forces. Six Ukrainian servicemen are injured.

    As at 21.20

    According to recent information, small armored artillery boats "Berdyansk" and "Nikopol" were attacked bythe enemy's fire and lost their course. Harbour tug "Yana Kapu" was also forced to stop. Ukrainian ships are seized by Russian Special Forces. According to information two Ukrainian sailors are wounded.

    As at 20.28

    After leaving 12-mile zone, the Russian Federation FSB AF warhips launched fire at the ship group of the Naval Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Small armored artillery boat "Berdyansk" is damaged . The boat has lost its course, one person is injured. The weapon is used to defeat.

    As at 19.00

    After the ship group of the Naval Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine began exiting the Kerch Strait Russian ships and boats began following them and, in an ultimatum form, demanded to stop saying that weapons could be used. Also, there is an information about the deployment of the Russian Special Forces to the FSB AF border guard ship "Don" in order to attempt boarding.

    In spite of threats and provocations, the Ukrainian Navy boats continue to fullfill their task.

    As at 17.20

    Russian Black Sea Fleet minesweeper "Admiral Zakharin" and two "Raptor" type boats of the FSB AF freely crossed the Kerch Strait. This passage was not disturbed by a tanker with an excluded Automatic Identification Sysytem (AIS), by which Russia is blocking the Kerch Strait.

    This is another proof of Russia's hypocritical and false policy, since the peaceful passage for the ships group of the Naval Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is blocked whatever it takes.

    As at 14.30

    At 13.00 two RF Armed Forces attack helicopters Ka-52 were detected carring out combat course with seizure to accompany on-board weapons control systems of the Naval Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

    The Navy ships of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are waiting for a passage through the Kerch Strait for the third hour. At 13.42, according to Kerchtrafficcontrol information, the traffic on both sides of the bridge was blocked due to the tanker's landing on the shore in front of the bridge from the Azov Sea side, the movement of the channel is closed on both sides. This information hasn't been yet confirmed by the international navigation control system.

    As at 13.30

    At 03.58 in order to comply with international shipping security standards Ukrainian Navy small armored artillery boat "Berdyansk" contacted the coast post of Russian FSB AF, the seaports of Kerch and Caucasus and informed them about an intention to pass the Kerch Strait. Information was received, but no response was provided. Nevertheless, on 04.07 negotiations of the port Kerch "BEREG-23" operator with the Russian Black Sea Fleet "Suzdalets" regarding the detection of ships of the Naval Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were recorded.

    As at 9.30

    Today, November 25, ships of the Naval Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine consisting of two small armored artillery boats "Berdyansk" and "Nikopol" and a harbour tug "Yana Kapu" carried out a planned transition from the port of Odessa to the port of Mariupol in the Azov Sea. The intention of this transition was announced in advance, in accordance with the international norms, in order to ensure the security of shipping. However, contrary to the UN Convention on the Sea Law and the Agreement between Ukraine and the Russian Federation on cooperation in the use of the Azov Sea and the Kerch Strait, Russian border guard boats - "Sobol", "Don" , "Mangust" , "Suzdalez" type had carried out a frankly aggressive action against the Navy ships of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

    Russian Federation once again demonstrated its aggressive nature and negligence to the norms of international law. The Navy ships of the Armed Forces of Ukraine continue to carry out their tasks in compliance with all international law norms. All illegal actions are recorded by the ships crews and Command of the Naval Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and will be transferred to the qualified international agencies.

    Where the flashpoint occurred
    Tensions have been rising in the Sea of Avov, which lies south of the Ukrainian regions partially seized by pro-Russian separatists.

    A 2003 treaty guarantees free navigation to Russian and Ukrainian vessels, but Russia has recently increased its military presence.

    It has begun inspecting all vessels going to or from Ukrainian ports, with some calling Moscow's actions an "economic blockade".

    Just tried to look at the Ukranian defense ministry website-took 3 tries but I got into the english page.

    Take a peek while you still can. I'd expect all Ukranian websites to go dark quickly and permanently.

    EU: Russia must 'restore freedom of passage'

    The EU says tensions have "increased dangerously" as a result of the incident between Russia and Ukraine.

    "We expect Russia to restore freedom of passage at the Kerch strait and urge all to act with utmost restraint to de-escalate the situation immediately," the EU says in a statement.

    It says the construction of the Kerch bridge by Russia, under which a tanker is blocking passage through the strait, took place without Ukraine's consent and is "another violation of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity".

    "The European Union expects Russia to stop the inspections. The EU does not and will not recognise the illegal annexation of the Crimean peninsula by Russia," the statement adds.

    Nato calls for 'restraint and de-escalation'
    Nato spokesperson Oana Lungescu says the military alliance is "closely monitoring" developments in the Sea of Azov and the Kerch Strait.

    "We call for restraint and de-escalation," she says.

    "Nato fully supports Ukraine's sovereignty and its territorial integrity, including its navigational rights in its territorial waters. We call on Russia to ensure unhindered access to Ukrainian ports in the Azov Sea, in accordance with international law.

    "At the Brussels Summit in July, Nato leaders expressed their support to Ukraine, and made clear that Russia's ongoing militarisation of Crimea, the Black Sea and the Azov Sea pose further threats to Ukraine's independence and undermines the stability of the broader region."

    The Germans I bet will be particularly quiet on commenting about this. Russia has them in a stranglehold regarding fuel supplies.
    I'd also venture a guess that Ukraine is going to be a particularly "cool" place to visit this winter.

    An off the wall thought for the TB2K family-Ukraine when they declared independence had one of the largest nuclear arsenals in the world. The nukes went back to Russia in return for fuel supplies and economic credits .Most of their electricity is generated by nuclear power plants. I wonder if the Ukranians have a hail mary set up using either dirty bombs or perhaps a warhead or two not turned over.

    Whatever happens it's going to be messy.

    Ukraine building 'a clear-cut coalition to resist Russia's acts of aggression'

    Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin told a Ukrainian TV channel that "Russia has carried out an act of aggression against Ukraine."

    He said he was in contact with "friends and partners" and they were drawing up a "clear sequence of actions we are going to take together".

    "With this in mind, I talked today to both friends and the leadership of international organisations such as Nato and the EU. The president will shortly speak to the leadership of international organisations to build a clear-cut coalition to resist Russia's acts of aggression."

    "The most intriguing point for the historian is that where history and legend meet."

    "None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who think they are free."
