Ukraine and the U.S. will coordinate the efforts to apply the pressure on Russia, so that the Kremlin releases the detained Ukrainian sailors. U.S. Envoy for Ukraine's Affairs Kurt Volker and President Petro Poroshenko agreed on that during the meeting in Kyiv. 

Volker assumed that the extra sanctions against Russia could take place for the naval aggression in the Kerch Strait.  The sides also discussed the prospects of deployment of the UN peacekeepers in the war-torn eastern Ukraine.
