Russian Federation to deploy new missiles to Crimea as Ukraine tensions rise

Russia is sending a new division of S-400 Triumf surface-to-air missile systems to Crimea in a new sign of heightened tensions. Here one of the systems is carried during the Victory Day military parade Russia held in May

National Security adviser John Bolton said Trump will also be meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Argentine President Mauricio Macri, South Korea's Moon Jae-in, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Moscow's announcement about new missiles follows its seizure of three Ukrainian naval vessels and their crews on Sunday over what it said was their illegal entry into Russian waters, an allegation Ukraine denies.

He said the Ukrainian ships had entered Russian territorial waters and refused to respond to requests to stop from Russian patrol boats.

"It is completely obvious that if Ukraine, either by itself or with the help of its allies, somehow tries to resolve issues by military means, this will all turn into a military defeat. I didn't like the incident and we're getting a report on what's going on", Trump told The Post during a 36-minute Oval Office interview.

Olexiy Makeyev, the Ukrainian foreign ministry's political director, told Al Jazeera on Wednesday that the development was "dangerous not only for Ukraine" but the whole Black Sea region.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko asked lawmakers in Kiev to institute martial law, something the country did not do even during the worst of the fighting in the east that killed about 10,000 people.

The Russian president said it seemed like Kiev could get away with anything as far as foreign nations supporting Ukraine's anti-Russian stance were concerned.

While Russian forces occupied Crimea before the takeover and are heavily involved in the war in eastern Ukraine, according to Kyiv and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, the clash in the Black Sea near Crimea was the first case in which Russia has acknowledged its military or law enforcement forces have fired on Ukrainians.

These changes are expected to allow the Evoque to stay true to the thoroughness of the urban SUV that the previous model ensured. Full local pricing and specifications will be announced closer to the new Evoque's local arrival in the second quarter of 2019.


Ukraine says martial law, which has been imposed across a large swathe of the country today, is necessary to defend against the threat of Russian invasion.

This week, a court in Simferopol, the capital of Crimea, ordered the other 15 Ukrainian sailors to be detained for two months pending a possible trial.

Kudlow said the administration has been "extremely disappointed" by China's engagement in trade talks but the meeting between Mr. Trump and Xi on the sidelines of the Group of 20 summit could be a game-changer.

Later on Wednesday a Crimean court is due to order the detention of nine of the 24 captured Ukrainian sailors - including senior Ukrainian naval officers and at least one member of Ukraine's SBU intelligence agency.

On a recent trip to Ukrainian towns and villages by the Sea of Azov earlier this month, we saw how the situation on land has settled into a relative calm; both sides have dug in and fortified the front line.

This is the first open armed confrontation between Ukraine and Russian Federation since the annexation of Crimea in March 2014.

He said he hoped Berlin could intervene with Ukrainian authorities "to dissuade them from further reckless acts". "We know that those missiles can be used also for ground targets", he said.
