#Ukraine’s on the verge of martial law b/c #Russia just seriously escalated its 4yo illegal war—blocking key Kerch Strait, firing on & seizing 3 Ukrainian navy ships, wounding 6 Ukrainian sailors—AND Trump attacks NATO & EU. Appalling, terrifying & expected of a #PutinPuppet.
#Russia’s fresh aggression in its 4+yr illegal war on #Ukraine is a crisis with advance warning. Read @KyivPost’s coverage of Russia’s military threats to gain control of Azov Sea… via @BSBonner #KerchStrait #KerchBlockade #PutinWar #RussiaAttacksUkraine
Escalating tensions between #Russia and #Ukraine in the Sea of Azov bear echoes of Russian provocations that led to the war with Georgia in 2008… via @AtlanticCouncil h/t @IlvesToomas #KerchBlockade #KerchStrait #RussiaAttacksUkraine #BlackSea
#Russia Attacks #Ukraine in Azov Sea: What we know so far about yesterday’s incident in Kerch Strait. (Includes a good rundown of Russian propaganda efforts, always escalated along with its military provocations) via @uacrisis
#Ukraine President @poroshenko:

•Martial law for 30 days

@poroshenko @Kateryna_Kruk "This is no way for a law-abiding civilized nation to act"—Nikki Haley at #UN on #Russia's "dangerous escalation" in #KerchStrait: "Impeding #Ukraine ships' lawful passage…ramming & firing on them…is an arrogant act that the int'l community must condemn & will never accept."
Russian sailors uploaded a curse-laden video of them gunning for a Ukrainian vessel yesterday at the #KerchStrait #AzovSea near #Crimea. #Russia also fired on and seized 3 of #Ukraine's ships, wounded 6 Ukrainian sailors, arrested 23. (Translation in THREAD via @EuromaidanPress)
🚨NOT TOO SOVIET: #Russia’s FSB posts video of #Ukraine’s servicemen detained following Kerch Strait incident in which the captured Ukrainians “confessed it was a provocation” and claimed “Ukrainian warships entered Russian territorial waters on a direct order from Kiev”😒 (TASS)
Putin is so emboldened, he attacked Ukraine outright—w/o even hiding behind his proxy “separatists.” Kerch Strait crisis is a huge deal. Nikki Haley condemned Russia’s aggression but Trump refused to. His #BothSides talk rolls out the red carpet to Putin.…
