The U.S. President Donald Trump threatened to cancel the meeting with Russian leader Vladimir Putin due to Russia’s aggressive capture of the Ukrainian vessels and sailors in Azov Sea, as he said in the interview for The Washington Post.

“It’s very important. Maybe, I won’t have this meeting. I don’t like that aggression. I don’t want that aggression at all,” the news agency reads.

He added that he expected “a full report” from his national security team on Russia’s capture of three Ukrainian vessels.

As we reported earlier, the coast guard ships of the Russian Navy acted aggressively against the ships of the Ukrainian Navy, which have been carrying out a scheduled transition from Odesa port to Mariupol port in the Sea of Azov.  The Verkhovna Rada adopted the draft law approving as a whole a presidential decree on the imposition of martial law in Ukraine.
