As we reported, Kyiv urgently convened the UN Security Council because of the aggravation in Azov Sea. The Russians shelled and seized the vessels of the Ukrainian Naval Forces “Berdyansk”, “Nikopol” and “Yany Kapu”, which passed from Odesa (the Black Sea) to Mariupol (the Sea of Azov), moving through Kerch Strait. The state of 23 Ukrainian sailors is unknown.
