Ukraine Requests Assistance from North Atlantic Treaty Organisation

"Russian men aged 16 to 60 have been barred from entering the country", he said at a meeting dedicated to ensuring the country's defense capability in the situation of martial law, which also involved Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko.

On Sunday, Russia opened fire on three Ukrainian ships and seized their crews in the Kerch Strait between the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov.

On Thursday, US President Donald Trump canceled his planned meeting with Russian leader Vladimir Putin because of this crisis.

Poroshenko has said the martial law won't affect Ukrainians' civil rights, just those of Russians. Moscow seized the ships and captured about 23 sailors, marking a major escalation between two countries that have been at odds since Russia's 2014 annexation of Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula.

The Moscow Patriarchate strongly denies this and says it is working to promote peace in Ukraine. While these young people support Russian greatness, they define greatness not only in military terms, but also on the basis of economic prosperity and social progress.

Hunt was questioned by police at the time of the incident , but was not arrested, and the event was reported by media at the time. The video, which was obtained by TMZ , shows an incident that took place at a luxury hotel in Cleveland in February.

Relations between Kyiv and Moscow have been tense since Crimea became part of Ukraine after the dissolution of the Soviet Union and it's reported the region still has a large Russian population.

"We can only resolve this in talks with one another because there is no military solution to all of these conflicts", she said.

Tensions between Ukraine and Russian Federation have been simmering, with regular outbursts of violence, since Moscow annexed the Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea in 2014.

Moscow is concerned that civil conflict may break out in the whole of Ukraine following the declaration of martial law. They are facing charges of illegally crossing the Russian border, which carries a possible maximum sentence of six years in prison.

On Sunday, Russian ships stopped Ukrainian naval vessels attempting to pass though the Kerch Strait, which connects the Azov with the Black Sea.

McCann returns to Braves on one-year deal
General manager Alex Anthopoulos attended the news conference for McCann but did not comment on the signing of Donaldson. Donaldson, meanwhile, gets a nice chunk of change and a chance to do it again, this time on a legitimate contender.

Putin has claimed that the naval confrontation was a ploy to boost his Ukrainian counterpart's popularity ahead of an election in March.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that Mr Poroshenko's request for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation to send warships into the Sea of Azov is "clearly aimed at provoking further tensions", adding that it was driven by the Ukrainian leader's "electoral and domestic policy motives". It's apparently created to prevent Moscow from forming "private armies" on Ukrainian soil.

Tensions between Russian Federation and Ukraine hit a new low on November 25 after Ukrainian Navy gunboats violated Russia's territorial waters and proceeded to engage in unsafe maneuvers in and around the Kerch Strait. This outward show of hostility has led to the ongoing undeclared war in the Donetsk region, in Eastern Ukraine.

The only exceptions, according to Tsyhyakal, would be "humanitarian cases".

The state security service was investigating him under an article in the criminal code covering "violations of citizens' equality depending on racial ethnicity, religious convictions, incitement of inter-confessional hostility", SBU official Ihor Huskov said.
