NATO in the Black Sea: How will Russia Respond
 
04:11
NATO in the Black Sea: How will Russia Respond - NATO plans to deploy warships to the Black Sea to ensure safe passage for Ukrainian vessels through the Kerch Strait, effectively controlled by Russia. If the Kremlin allows such transit, NATO and Ukraine will doubtlessly see that as a sign of Russian weakness. The Kerch Strait, as well as the whole Crimean Peninsula, is a de-facto part of Russia, and any unauthorized passage through Russian territorial waters would be a clear violation of Russian sovereignty. NATO and Ukraine, on the other hand, never recognized the Russian annexation of Crimea, and therefore they claim they have the right to freely access the Sea of Azov through the Kerch Strait.

Регата Кубок портов Черного моря 2018 Одесса/Regatta Black Sea ports cup 2018
 
02:11
С 2001-ого года в День работников морского и речного транспорта Украины стартует открытая регата крейсерских яхт "Кубок портов Черного моря ". У истоков этой регаты стояли три порта: Одесса ( Павлюк Н.П.), Южный (Иванов В.Г.), Ильичёвск (Черноморск) ( Стребко С.К.). Полномочный организатор регаты - Одесская областная Федерация парусного спорта. История парусного спорта нашего региона началась в 1875 году, когда был учреждён и открыт в Одессе, один из первых на юге России, Черноморский яхт-клуб. История паруса прошлого века - это походы Анатолия Вербы, победы экипажей яхт портов Одесса, Южный, Ильичёвск (Черноморск), Одесского института инженеров морского флота (ныне ОНМУ) в "Кубке Крыма", Кубке БМВ, Адмиральском кубке, Кильской регате и регате порта Бургас, в трансатлантической - регате "Колумб - 500" и многих иных, не менее значимых спортивных состязаниях. Новое тысячелетие в парусной жизни нашего региона связано с открытой регатой крейсерских яхт "Кубок портов Черного моря". Регата, посвященная Дню работников морского и речного транспорта (с 2009 года – День флота Украины), традиционно стартует в первое воскресенье июля и длится в течении недели. В этом году регата приурочена к двум знаменательным событиям : 40-летию образования порта «Южный» и 60-летию образования порта Черноморск . Мнение специалистов, любителей паруса едино: "Кубок портов Черного моря" одна из немногих украинских регат, в которых присутствует дух настоящих крейсерских гонок. Регата служит становлению юных яхтсменов. Маститые капитаны воспитывают элиту Украинского парусного спорта. Спортивные соревнования уровня регаты " Кубок портов Черного моря" способствуют видению будущего нашего региона в развитии яхтенного туризма, в подготовке квалифицированных шкиперов и яхтенных экипажей. В строительстве инфраструктуры яхтенного туризма (на побережье появились новые, обустроенные марины) , в подготовке и реализации программ, обеспечивающих экологическую безопасность Черноморского бассейна, в развитии детского и юношеского парусного спорта, обеспечивая тем самым выполнение программы правительства Украины " Физическое и моральное здоровье нации ". Парус всегда был символом великих морских держав. Символом их достоинства и достатка. Данью уважения вековым традициям и знаниям Тружеников моря. Мы уверены, что регата подчеркнёт роль и значение морехозяйственного комплекса региона для Украины, роль государственных предприятий морских торговых портов Одесса, Южный, Черноморск в развитии социальной сферы и спорта.

Russia - Ukraine tensions BOIL OVER Royal Navy spy ship enters Black Sea
 
11:27
Royal Navy spy ship enters Black Sea as Ukraine fears Russia INVASION - A ROYAL Navy reconnaissance ship has entered the Black Sea via the Bosphorus Strait at the request of Ukraine amid a tense military stand off with Russia. HMS Echo, a multi-role hydrographic survey ship, was pictured cruising through the Bosphorus en route to the sea, shared by Ukraine and Russia, on Monday night. Equipped with high-tech oceanographic surveying kit, the Echo-class vessel was flanked by the Turkish Coast Guard as it entered the Black Sea at around 6pm local time. Britain agreed to send HMS Echo following a meeting between UK defence minister Gavin Williamson and Ukraine’s Defense Minister Stepan Poltorak in November, according to Ukraine’s military portal. “The visit to the Black Sea takes place within the agreement of Ukraine and Britain reached on November 21, 2018, during the visit of Ukraine’s Defense Minister Stepan Poltorak to London. Then, British Secretary of State for Defense Gavin Williamson announced, expressing the support to Ukraine, that HMS Echo (H87) will be sent to the Black Sea,” the military portal said. The deployment is the first time a Royal Navy ship has entered the Black Sea since Russia seized three Ukrainian vessels last month, inflaming tensions between Kiev and Moscow. Although the vessel is armed with cannons and miniguns, HMS Echo is designed to conduct undersea research and support amphibious operations. Under freedom of navigation rules, the vessel is expected to survey the Black Sea while offering symbolic support to the Ukrainian naval at a time of heightened military activity in the region. The Montreux Treaty allows HMS Echo to remain there for 21 days, according to Bosphorus-based naval observer Yörük Isik, who captured pictures of the vessel. Tensions between Kiev and Moscow have come to a head in recent weeks after the Russian coast guard seized three Ukrainian ships in the Black Sea, damaging already frayed relations. Last month, Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko said the shipping incident was an “extraordinary event” in the context of Moscow’s recent “aggression”. The president has brought martial law into effect and put Ukraine’s armed forces on full-combat alert in response to the explosive skirmish. He said, because Russian military activity and tank deployments have “dramatically increased” along Ukraine’s borders, the armed forces have been ramping up preparations “in case of a large-scale ground invasion”. Russia has faced a firestorm of condemnation from the international community over the incident in the Black Sea, with many Western leaders calling for fresh sanctions against Moscow. Kremlin officials have reacted furiously to the incident, accusing Ukraine of staging the “very dangerous provocation” as a pretext to provoke a conflict. Moscow said the alleged breach of Russian waters was “planned” and Russia will “strongly” respond to similar “provocations”. Kiev accuses Moscow of trying to impose a de facto economic blockade on its ports in the Azov Sea to weaken it as part of a "hybrid war" against Ukraine. The countries have been at loggerheads since Russia seized Crimea from Ukraine in 2014 and backed an insurgency in the eastern Donbass region that has killed more than 10,000 people despite a notional ceasefire. Over the weekend Ukraine deployed dozens of tanks and fighter jets to the front line of conflict against Russian-backed insurgents from the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) in eastern Donetsk Oblast.

Gavin Williamson said to Ukraine: Black Sea doesn't belong to Russia
 
02:20
The Defence Secretary said the waters do not belong to Moscow and that he has dispatched HMS Echo has been dispatched to show Kiev does not stand alone. He made the pledge while on a visit to Ukraine amid rising tensions between the country and its assertive neighbour, Russia. Vladimir Putin sent troops into Ukraine in 2014, annexing Crimea and sparking a civil war which still rages in the east of the country. And tensions escalated last month when Russia fired on and seized three Ukrainian naval vessels off the Crimean Peninsula. The stand-off sparked fears of an all-out war between the two countries and  led Ukraine to declare martial law. HMS Echo, a Navy warship equipped with cutting edge spy technology, docked in Odessa two days ago.

RUSSIA PANIC: Two Russian Navy Escorts Three NATO Warships in Black Sea on Way to Ukraine
 
10:56
RUSSIA PANIC: Two Russian Navy Escorts Three NATO Warships in Black Sea on Way to Ukraine - Two Russian warships are escorting three frigates of the NATO in the Black Sea, Russian media reported Friday. The Ivan Khurs reconnaissance ship and the Vasily Bykov corvette of the Russia Black Sea Fleet are monitoring the movement of the NATO vessels, TASS news agency said, quoting the National Defense Management Center. Turkish DNA agency reported earlier in the day that three frigates, Canadian Toronto, Spanish Santa Maria and Dutch Evertsen, have passed the Bosporus Strait on their way to the Black Sea. The commander of a NATO maritime group said Dutch, Spanish, Canadian, Turkish, Romanian and Bulgarian frigates entered the Black Sea on Thursday. The warships are part of the alliance’s defense cooperation exercises taking place on April 8-12. Two of the frigates are scheduled to make a port call in the Ukrainian city of Odessa on April 1. The NATO has been conducting exercises with Georgia, located on the Black Sea, From March 18 to March 29, involving 343 military and civilian personnel from 21 NATO members, Azerbaijan, Sweden and Georgia. NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg expressed "concerns about Russia's military build-up in the Black Sea region" at a press conference on Monday in Georgia's capital of Tbilisi. Stoltenberg said NATO has increased its presence in the Black Sea to address the "security challenges." Russia has just completed drills in Crimea, involving more than 1,500 paratroopers, over 300 pieces of equipment, warplanes, helicopters and large landing ships, the Russian Defense Ministry said Friday. NATO and Russian military maneuvers were conducted ahead of the Ukrainian presidential election on March 31, when incumbent President Petro Poroshenko will seek a re-election. Russia issued a statement criticizing “frequent visitors” to the Black Sea in January, when the U.S. Navy-guided missile destroyer Donald Cook entered the region. The Russian Black Sea fleet began monitoring the warship at the time as well. According to international law, vessels belonging to states that do not border the Black Sea path are allowed to stay there for no more than 21 days.

Ukraine’s Black Sea coast the next geopolitical flashpoint
 
10:51
Ukraine’s Black Sea coast the next geopolitical flashpoint - The Kerch Strait incident in November 2018 indicates that the geographic focal point of the Russian-Ukrainian military conflict may be currently shifting from the Donets Basin to the Black and Azov Seas. Four factors in particular make further tensions between Moscow and Kyiv, along the shores of the Crimean peninsula and Ukraine’s southeastern mainland coastline probable. On November 25th 2018 Russia attacked Ukrainian naval vessels at the Kerch Strait, captured three ships and arrested the 24 sailors on board. The maritime clash indicates that the focal point of the Russian-Ukrainian military conflict may gradually shift from the Donets Basin to the Azov Sea in 2019. According to Vitaliy Kravchuk, senior researcher at the Institute of Economic Research and Policy Consulting in Kyiv, “if there are further marine incidents, it could mean the closure of the Azov ports for shipping.” Such a development would have grave economic repercussions not only for the large cities of Mariupol (approximately 455,000 inhabitants) and Berdyansk (approximately 115,000 inhabitants). These two ports have hitherto been handling about five per cent of Ukraine’s foreign trade, mostly in steel, chemicals and agricultural products. Ukraine has only limited or/and decrepit alternative transport infrastructure to redirect trade flows that have until now gone through the Mariupol and Berdyansk seaports. Continuing tensions or, worse, further escalation at the Azov Sea will above all threaten social stability in south-eastern mainland Ukraine. It can also lead to a significant reduction or even curtailment of Ukrainian economic growth in 2019 and beyond. Absent Western material reactions and international organizations In spite of these potentially grave consequences, such a scenario is not unlikely. There are several simultaneous and mutually aggravating catalysts for rising tensions along the Azov and Black Sea coastlines. They include: the reaction of the West vis-à-vis different Russian escalation schemes; the degree of involvement of international organizations in the Azov Sea; the stability and functionality of the Kerch Strait Bridge; and the unresolved issue of ensuring a sustainable fresh water supply to occupied Crimea. A major factor currently enabling escalation in the Azov region is the West’s reaction (or lack thereof) to the recent naval confrontation near the Kerch Strait Bridge. The West, so far, follows what one could call the Crimea Modus (and not the Donbas Modus) of response to rising tension between Moscow and Kyiv. The EU has not reacted materially to the capture of Ukrainian sailors, as it did after the shooting down of MH17 in July 2014. Reminiscent of its behavior in the wake of Russia’s annexation of Crimea in March 2014, the EU has instead responded by sending verbal and symbolic signals to Moscow, and may, if at all, impose some individual sanctions. The West’s largely non-material signaling may encourage the Kremlin to switch Russian military and other anti-Ukrainian activities from the Donbas to the Azov Sea and Ukraine’s south-eastern drylands. To Moscow, the latter may appear as a less risky hybrid war theatre than the Donbas, particularly in an economic sense. While continuing blockade of Ukrainian trade or further military escalation may further raise Western “concern,” apparently, the overall costs of such behavior will remain low, for the Kremlin. A second determinant of continuing or rising tensions around Crimea rather than in the Donets Basin is the involvement of international organizations (or lack thereof) in the two different regions. It is worth remembering that in 2017 Putin suggested an increase of such organizations’ presence in the Donbas. He proposed to add a small, armed UN protection contingent to the relatively large, unarmed OSCE observation mission. To be sure, this proposal did not satisfy Ukraine and the West back then and was thus not implemented. Still, Putin has been far more lenient regarding the presence of international organizations in the Donbas than with regard to the Azov Sea and Crimea. Here, the Kremlin is demonstratively blocking even a minor presence of unarmed OSCE observers, not to mention an armed UN mission. The absence of significant international organizations in the Azov Sea and on the Crimean peninsula makes Russian actions against Ukraine in that region less risky and more likely.

Ukraine claims Russia is blockading its Azov sea ports
 
05:09
(2 Dec 2018) Ukrainian authorities claim Russia is blockading its ports in the Sea of Azov. The country's minister of infrastructure said on Sunday that no Ukrainian ships heading to or from the ports in Mariupol and Berdyansk have been allowed in over the last seven days. "All vessels which were entering Azov Sea in direction of seaport (of) Mariupol and Berdyansk were stopped by Russians," said Volodymyr Omelyant. Dockers at Berdyansk port also said that ships were much less frequent at the Azov Sea ports. "(The ships) rarely come. You can see that there are no vessels," said docker Vitaliy Sinhur. The seizure of three Ukrainian naval vessels and their crews last week stunned local workers, both civil and military.   "I’m worried (for sailors detained in the Kerch Strait) because we overcame together many things," said the captain of the Kremenchug smaller armoured gunboat, the same as that detained in the Kerch Strait. The three ships were trying to pass through from the Black Sea into the Sea of Azov through the narrow Kerch Strait between Russia’s mainland and Crimea. The Russian coast guard refused to let them pass and after many tense hours of maneuvering fired on the Ukrainian boats and seized them along with their 24 crewmen. Ukraine has imposed entry restrictions on Russian men amid the spiraling conflict and called western countries to boost their presence in the Black Sea to deter Russia from further aggressive actions.

Ukraine: US Navy Destroyer arrives in Odessa to patrol region
 
01:10
American Destroyer USS Carney DDG-64 entered the Odessa port to patrol regional waters on Monday, thus becoming the first ship of the NATO countries to visit the Black Sea region in 2018. According to the American Naval Forces, the goal is providing security and strengthening of naval capacity among NATO partners and allies. One local citizen questioned the ship's mission in Ukraine. "To my opinion, there is absolutely nothing for them [Americans] to do here," the local man said. Another Odessa resident had a differing opinion, "They don't need it, but we might need it, as Ukraine almost doesn't have its own military and civil navy." The ship is expected to stay at port till January 11, 2018.

This video features footage from the ferry crossing from Chornomorsk, near Odessa, to Batumi, Georgia via the ferry. Ukrferry's ship, "The Greifswald" took us across the Black Sea and the trip was incredibly enjoyable. On this voyage there were a few families, but mostly truck drivers and business people who were making the crossing. We were the only Americans on board, but were welcomed and met a lot of nice people. The food was much better than expected. They gave us vegetarian food when requested, and it was more than enough food to keep us full. The ship departed on time and arrived only an hour later than scheduled. Coming into Batumi was a great sight, as were the sunsets on deck. We passed by Crimea and could see the cliffs in the distance. If you are interested in taking this voyage, it's well worth the cost. The room was nice and larger than expected. The ship was clean. The staff was friendly. I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed this voyage. It was a "once in a lifetime" thing that many people from North America don't get to experience.

Rear Admiral of Ukraine's Navy Oleksiy Neyizhpapa and U.S. Navy Captain Matthew Liman are the co-commanding officers in charge of the exercise. This year's Sea Breeze involves 30 vessels from naval forces of 19 countries, including a Turkish submarine. An important feature of the exercise is that the multinational staff will be coordinating the actions of naval, air and ground forces from USS Mount Whitney, the flagship of the 6th U.S. Navy Fleet. ******************************************************************* 112 International: Breaking News and Analysis from Ukraine and Around the World ******************************************************************* Visit our web-site: http://112.international/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/112UAInternational/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/112NewsFeed
Oleksandr Khara on Russia’s Blockade of Ukraine’s Azov Sea Ports
 
07:14
In addition to the war in Ukraine’s east that has left over 10,000 dead, Russia is leading another war in its neighbouring country. And this is all taking off near the Ukrainian coast of the Azov Sea. Despite the fact not a single drop of blood has been shed in this conflict, it could lead to serious unprecedented damage to Ukraine’s economy. “[Russia’s] aim is to cut the sea lanes to Ukraine,” explains Oleksandr Khara, Deputy Chair at the Black Sea Institute of Strategic Studies. “Up to 80% of [Ukraine’s] exports go via the sea. It will damage Ukraine greatly if they succeed.” According to Khara, the blockade of Ukraine’s Azov Sea ports started in April 2015 when the “illegal construction of the bridge along the Kerch Strait” began. “From that time, [Russia has been] stopping [Ukrainian] vessels and closing the sea for any movements.” Khara adds that Russia has also deployed several shallow gunboats, submarines, corvettes capable of “striking up to central Ukraine” and Kalibr missiles. “They are threatening [Ukraine] by deploying these types of assault weapons,” he says. According to the 2003 agreement signed between the Russian President Vladimir Putin and Ukraine’s then-President Leonid Kuchma, both countries can use the Azov Sea freely. This same agreement, Khara says, allows Russia to position their vessels near the shore of Ukraine. In Khara’s opinion, annulling this agreement is one of the keys to ensuring a resolution to the conflict. Highlighting that Russia understands force well, he adds that Ukraine also needs to enforce and better equip its navy. But Russia’s actions are not just about the “passage of vessels,” Khara adds. “It's about undermining Ukrainian sovereignty, militarizing both [the Azov and the Black] seas, and then unfolding aggression in another direction.” Hromadske spoke with Oleksandr Khara, the Deputy Chair at the Black Sea Institute of Strategic Studies, about the increasing tension between Ukraine and Russia over the Ukrainian coast of the Azov Sea.

A Russian flag on his jacket including the markings of a colonel in the Russian military. The officer was stopped at gunpoint by the unidentified gunmen. After several minutes they allowed the officer to pass. Earlier on Friday, Ukraine's new interior minister, Arsen Avakov, claimed that Russian troops had taken control of the two main airports in the strategic peninsula of Crimea. The country has also asked the UN Security Council to intervene in the escalating conflict. Russian state media said Russian forces in Crimea denied involvement. No violence was reported at the civilian airport in Crimea's capital of Simferopol or at the military airport in the Black Sea port of Sevastopol, also part of Crimea. At the Simferopol airport, a man claiming to speak for the camouflage-clad forces patrolling the airport described them as Crimean militiamen. Any Russian military incursion in Crimea would dramatically raise the stakes in Ukraine's conflict, which saw the pro-Russian president flee last weekend after three months of anti-government protests. Moscow has vowed to protect Russian-speaking Ukrainians in Crimea, where it has a major naval base, and Ukraine and the West have warned Russia to stay away. All flights at the civilian airport in Simferopol have stopped.

UKRAINE: PRESIDENT YELTSIN COMPROMISE ON BLACK SEA FLEET
 
01:30
Natural Sound Russian President Boris Yeltsin and Ukrainian President Leonid Kuchma reached a compromise over the fate of the former Black Sea Fleet Friday. But it appears that Ukraine had to give way most of its initiative. In a major concession, Kuchma agreed to allow Russia to base its Black Sea Fleet in the naval port of Sevastopol. Sevastopol, the capital of the Crimean peninsula, will remain Ukrainian territory, despite the presence of Russia's warships. Control of Sevastopol, long the home of the Soviet and now the Russian Black Sea Fleet, has been a serious bone of contention between Russia and Ukraine since the break up of the Soviet Union. Ukraine wanted to base its own fleet at the port, confining its Russian neighbour to just two harbours. But now the two countries have hammered out an agreement which allows the Russians to stay in full strength, but keeps the port as Ukraine territory. After signing the treaty, President Yeltsin said the two nations had now finally put an end to their disagreement on the Black Sea Fleet, and now looked forward to building anew strategic partnership.

Crisis in Ukraine : Russia Extends its Control over the Black Sea and Strategic Waterways
 
10:03
Crisis in Ukraine: Russia Extends its Control over the Black Sea and Strategic Waterways On May 15, President Vladimir Putin took part in the opening ceremony of the Crimean Bridge – “a super 19-kilometre-long construction” linking Crimea to Russia’s Krasnodar region. This bridge is strategic and broader the economic and geopolitical implications in the region. The decision of Crimea to join the Russian Federation has strategic and geopolitical implications. The union of Crimea with Russia redefines both the geography as well as the geopolitical chessboard in the Black Sea basin. It constitutes a major setback for US-NATO, whose longstanding objective has been to integrate Ukraine into NATO with a view to undermining Russia, while extending Western military presence in the Black Sea basin. With the March 18, 2014 Treaty signed between Russia and Crimea, the Russian Federation will extend its control over the Black Sea as well over the Sea of Azov, the West coastline of which borders on Eastern Ukraine and the Donesk region. Under the agreement between Russia and Crimea announced by president Putin, two “constituent regions” of Crimea will join the Russian Federation: the “Republic of Crimea” and the “City of Sevastopol”. Both will have the status of “autonomous regions”. The status of Sevastopol as an autonomous entity separate from Crimea is related to the location of Russia’s Naval base in Sevastopol. Since the break-up of the Soviet Union, Russia retained its naval base in Sevastopol under a bilateral agreement with Ukraine. With the signing of the March 18th Treaty, that agreement is null and void. Sevastopol including the Russian naval base become part of an autonomous region within the Russian Federation. The naval base is no within Ukraine under a lease agreement. Moreover, Crimea’s territorial waters now belong to the Russian Federation. Russia now formally controls a much larger portion of the Black Sea, which includes the entire coastline of the Crimean peninsula. The Eastern part of Crimea –including the Kerch straits– are now under Russia’s jurisdiction control. On the Eastern side of the Kerch straits is Russia’s Krasnodar region and extending southwards are the port cities of Novorossiysk and Sochi. Novorossiysk is also strategic. It is Russia’s largest commercial port on the Black Sea, at the cross-roads of major oil and gas pipelines between the Black Sea and Caspian sea. Historically, the Kerch straits have played a strategic role. They constitute a gateway from the Black Sea to Russia’s major waterways including the Don and the Volga. During World War II, the Kerch peninsula occupied by Nazi Germany was an important point of transit by land and water. In the coldest months of Winter, it became an ice bridge linking Crimea to the Krasnodar region. The Kerch straits are about 5 kilometers in length and 4.5 km. wide at the narrowest point between the tip of Eastern Crimea and the peninsula of Taman. Kerch is a major commercial port linked to railway, ferry and river routes. the integration of Crimea into the Russian Federation means that Moscow is now in full control of the Kerch Straits linking the Black Sea to the Sea of Azov. The Ukrainian authorities are no longer in control of the port of Kerch. The bilateral agreement between Russia and Ukraine governing the maritime route through the Kerch straights has been scrapped. The straits constitute an entry point into Russia’s major river waterways. The Sea of Azov connects with the Don River and the Volga, through the Volga Don Canal. In turn, the Volga flows into the Caspian sea. The Kerch straits are strategic. The Kerch-Yenikalskiy Canal allows large vessels to transit from the Black sea to the Sea of Azov. the Kerch Straits link the Black Sea to the Volga which in turn connects to the Moscow river through the Volga-Moskva canal. Full control of the narrow Kerch straits by Russia ensures unimpeded maritime transit from the Black Sea to Russia’s capital as well as the maritime route to the Caspian Sea. The Russia-Ukraine 2013 agreement pertaining to the construction of the bridge had, for all purposes already been scrapped before March 16. Crimea’s union to Russia was already in the pipeline prior to the referendum, it was a fait accompli. Less than two weeks before the March 16 Referendum, at the height of the crisis in Ukraine, Russia’s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev ordered the state-road building corporation “Russian Highways” “to create a subsidiary company that will oversee the building of a bridge across the Kerch Strait”. This bridge would largely be geared towards train transport routes linking Western and Eastern Europe to the Caspian Sea basin, Kazakhstan and China. subscribe: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9IFRHTtYJFjhI5fBrLIJiQ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/DNA997

Sailors injured as Russia attacks and seizes Ukrainian ships in Black Sea

Subscribe to our YouTube channel for free here: https://sc.mp/subscribe-youtube Ukraine accused Russia of “an act of aggression” on Sunday, November 25, as Russia’s border guards reportedly opened fire on and seized three of its vessels and wounded at least three crew members in the Black Sea. The three Ukrainian naval ships were heading for the port of Mariupol in the Sea of Azov. Amid heightened tension between the countries Russia had shut off access to the Sea of Azov from the Black Sea, and accused Ukraine of entering its territorial waters without permission. The European Union and NATO have urged both sides to show restraint and “de-escalate the situation immediately” and the UN Security Council was to meet Monday to discuss the situation.
Tensions in Black Sea As Russian and Ukrainian Ships Clash Near Strategic Bridge
 
05:15
MOSCOW (AP) — Russia and Ukraine traded accusations over an incident at sea Sunday near the disputed Crimean Peninsula, increasing tensions between both countries and prompting Moscow to block passage through the Kerch Strait. Russia’s coast guard said that three Ukrainian navy ships made an unauthorized crossing through Russian territorial waters, while Ukraine alleged that one of its boats was rammed by a Russian coast guard vessel. The Kerch Strait is a narrow body of water nestled between Crimea and the Russian mainland. The incident began after the Ukrainian navy claimed a Russian coast guard vessel rammed one of its tugboats, which was traveling with two Ukrainian navy artillery boats from Odessa on the Black Sea to Mariupol in the Sea of Azov, via the Kerch Strait. “Russian coast guard vessels … carried out openly aggressive actions against Ukrainian navy ships,” the Ukrainian navy statement said. It said a Russian coast guard ship damaged the tugboat’s engine, hull, side railing and a lifeboat. The statement added that Russia had been informed in advance about the planned journey. Russia then blocked off the strait. The move comes after months of growing tensions between Ukraine and Russia, which annexed Crimea from Ukraine in 2014 and has steadily worked to increase its zone of control around the peninsula. The Kerch Strait is the only passage into the Sea of Azov beyond it. The strait is crossed by the recently completed Kerch Bridge, connecting Crimea to Russia. Transit under the bridge has been blocked by a tanker ship, and dozens of cargo ships awaiting passage are stuck. Russia has not given any indication of how long it will keep the strait blocked off, but a long-term closure to civilian traffic would amount to an economic blockade of Ukrainian cities on the Azov coast. And Russia’s Black Sea Fleet greatly outmatches the Ukrainian navy. Ukrainian cities on the Sea of Azov include strategically vital centers such as Mariupol — the closest government-controlled city to Donetsk and Luhansk, the breakaway regions of eastern Ukraine controlled by Russia-backed separatists. Russia’s Federal Security Service, known as the FSB, told Russian news agencies Sunday that the Ukrainian ships held their course and violated Russian territorial waters. The FSB accused the Ukrainian navy of staging a provocation against Russia. “Their goal is clear,” an FSB statement said — “to create a conflict situation in the region.” The statement didn’t mention ramming a Ukrainian tugboat. Though a 2003 treaty designates the Kerch Strait and Sea of Azov as shared territorial waters, Russia has been asserting greater control over the passage since 2015. The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said in a statement that Russia’s actions were a violation of the U.N. Charter and international law, and pledged to “promptly inform our partners about Russia’s aggressive actions.” “Such actions pose a threat to the security of all states in the Black Sea region,” the statement said, “and therefore require a clear response from the international community.” Dmitry Kiselyov, a commentator on the state-controlled Rossiya channel, told viewers of his Sunday evening news program that Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko — encouraged by the U.S. — is looking to pick a fight with Russia in the Black Sea. The talk show host also said that the U.S. talked Poroshenko into staging a provocation against Russia as a means to disrupt the upcoming meeting between Presidents Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump at this week’s Group of 20 summit in Argentina. “What is happening now at the (Kerch) bridge threatens to turn into a very unpleasant story,” Kiselyov warned. http://bit.ly/2Bwy0hF Subscribe To The New Channel: https://www.youtube.com/POTUSTrumpKAG ✝ Please Donate Just $1 A Month.

We flew about 200meters(656 feet) above the sea level. Watch in HD. Camera GoPro Black hero3 Украина Херсонская область Железный порт Полёт на парашюте за катером на высоте около 200 метровт http://wikitravel.org/en/Ukraine http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowForum-g294473-i3662-Ukraine.html Parasailing, also known as parascending, or "parakiting" is a recreational kiting activity where a person is towed behind a vehicle (usually a boat) while attached to a specially designed canopy wing that reminds one of a parachute, known as a parasail wing. The manned kite's moving anchor may be a car, truck, or boat. The harness attaches the pilot to the parasail, which is connected to the boat, or land vehicle, by the tow rope. The vehicle then drives off, carrying the parascender (or wing) and person into the air. If the boat is powerful enough, two or three people can parasail behind it at the same time. The parascender has little or no control over the parachute. The activity is primarily a fun ride, not to be confused with the sport of paragliding. There are commercial parasailing operations all over the world. Land-based parasailing has also been transformed into a competition sport in Europe. In land-based competition parasailing, the parasail is towed to maximum height behind a 4 wheel drive vehicle. The driver then releases the tow line; the parasailer flies down to a target area in an accuracy competition. The sport was developed in the early 80's and has been very popular ever since. The first international competitions were held in the mid 80's and continue to this day.

The Dnieper River offers you an up close and personal view of the culture and people that call the Ukaine home. Read more Information about our Ukraine River Cruise: http://www.rivercruises.net/europe/ukraine/ Welcome to Ukraine, one of Europe's last hidden treasures. Long in the shadow of the Soviet Empire, this lovely country, rich in history, culture and natural beauty, regained its independence in 1991 and opened its doors to the world. From gorgeous Odessa, the gateway to the Black Sea, to Yalta and its world-class beaches, to Zaporozhye, the home of the fearless Cossack warriors, and to cosmopolitan Kiev, with its wide, tree-lined boulevards and a thousand-year-old history, Ukraine is a true treasure chest of natural and man-made attractions waiting to be explored. We are pleased to introduce to you this new and exciting travel destination in the hopes that we may one day share in the pleasure of your company as you discover Ukraine with us. One of the best ways to explore this diverse country is by cruising the magnificent Dnieper River. At 1,420 miles in length, it is the third longest river in Europe, after the Volga and the Danube. The benefits of a river cruise are many. No packing and unpacking, as our floating hotel will take you from one exciting destination to the next. All your meals are included, as are most of your shore excursions. Our on-board staff of guides, cruise directors, and talented entertainers will delight you with their lectures, music, and hospitality.

A mild climate and a youthful, vibrant population have drawn the rich and the famous to this Black Sea port for centuries. Its most famous citizen, the French Duke De Richelieu, transformed the city into a thriving center of commerce and culture. Its Opera House, and the Potemkin Stairs, are world-renowned, while its tree-lined promenades and classical buildings painted in pastel hues invoke another era. Life on board our floating hotel will be as exciting as the ports you will be visiting. Our first stop, Sevastopol, is home to the Russian Navy's feared Black Sea Fleet.

There will be wine, entertainment, and a selection of songs performed by our enthusiastic flower girls. Kiev, the capital of Ukraine, is also recognized as the birthplace of Kievan Rus, or Russia. It came to be in 988, when Prince Vladmir the Great baptized the whole country and introduced Christianity to this part of the world. Today, it's a city of wide boulevards, giant chestnut trees, and a smiling and youthful population. The people are friendly, the city is beautiful. We hope you have enjoyed our short intro to Ukraine. we also hope we will have the pleasure of your company in the nearest future, as we sail along the beautiful Black Sea and the romantic Dnieper River.

UK destroyer to rescue Ukraine or sink in Black Sea
 
01:09
A warship of the British Royal Navy has set for the Black Sea: the Diamond destroyer, equipped with rockets, is approaching the Ukrainian coast. There can be up to 60 marines on board. It is supposed that the ship may take part in the guard mission of 650 British military men, who participate in some ‘secret drills’ in Ukraine. The Defence Secretary Michael Fallon has claimed that ‘The UK is sending a clear message that we are committed to defending democracy across the world and support Ukraine’s sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity’. As the Daily Mail noted in its material named Her Majesty's Ship Putin Hunter, such an approach has been undertaken for the first time since the Cold War. This step has become the most serious one after Theresa May claimed that ‘Britain and America should stand up to President Vladimir Putin’, the newspaper stated. As Pravda.Ru reported, in December Head of the Russian General Staff Valeriy Gerasimov claimed about increased activity of the NATO’s naval forces in the Barents, Baltic and Black Seas. According to him, in Europe the Alliance has been building up its military contingents, accumulating weapons and developing military infrastructure, which is destructive and provocative.

The Ukranian vessels were sailing between two Ukrainian ports: from Odessa in the Black Sea to Mariupol in the Azov Sea. The only waterway that connects these is the Kerch Strait between Crimea and mainland Russia. Kiev says it notified Moscow in advance that its navy ships would be sailing through the area. Moscow denies that it was given any warning, forcing the Russian military to use weapons to stop the vessels. The three Ukrainian ships were then seized and towed to the Kerch port, according to the Russian Security Service (FSB).
