As reported, Ukraine has bolstered its military footprint along the Sea of Azov coast due to aggressive actions of the Russian Federation. Over the last few months, Russia has detained a number of vessels that headed to the ports of Berdiansk and Mariupol. Ukrainian Infrastructure Minister Volodymyr Omelian stated that Ukraine was holding talks with EU countries and the U.S. to impose sanctions against Russia in response to the blockade of the Sea of Azov.
Earlier, experts in Washington warned that Russia had approached annexation of the Sea of Azov and that Kyiv had almost no tools to prevent it.
