Russians Open Fire, Capture Three Ukrainian Vessels

Russian ship opened fire on Ukrainian ships in the Black Sea and proceeded to capture three ships and the men aboard them. Three Ukrainian navy sailors have been wounded after incoming rounds hit two artillery boats. The attack has prompted Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko to call an emergency session of his war cabinet. There is also talk of imposing martial law.

Russia's Federal Security Service (FSB) said they ordered the ships to stop and when they did not, they opened fire. The FSB added they impounded the three vessels for illegally crossing the border. The three sailors who were injured are receiving medical treatment, and the FSB confirmed their lives are not in danger.

Ukraine's ambassador reported that Russian special forces had captured two armored artillery boats and a tugboat in what he is calling an "act of aggression." Mariana Betsa of the Ukrainian foreign ministry said, "Today's dangerous events in the Azov Sea testify that a new front of Russian aggression is open. Ukraine is calling now for an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council."

On the Russian side, the FSB disputes the claims saying it has "irrefutable evidence that Kiev prepared and orchestrated provocations… in the Black Sea". The FSB spokesman added, "These materials will soon be made public." Ukraine accused a Russian coastguard vessel named Don of ramming one of its tugboats which caused major damage to the vessel. The Ukrainian minister of internal affairs posted a video of the incident on Twitter.

The incident included three Ukrainian navy boats including two small warships headed for the port of Mariupol in the Sea of Azov. The area has been increasing in tension as the two countries struggle to operate in the region. Russia claims the waters of Crimea after annexing the peninsula in 2014 and accused Ukraine of illegally entering the area and intentionally causing a conflict.

The FSB spokesman said, "Their goal is clear - to create a conflict situation in the region." The Ukrainian Navy says they informed the appropriate channels about the planned trip. "Russian coastguard vessels… carried out openly aggressive actions against Ukrainian navy ships," the Ukraine Navy said. The European Union called for the two countries to "act with utmost restraint to de-escalate" in the Black Sea.

A few hours after the incident in the Black Sea, Russian media sites began reporting, "Ukrainian Forces Pound Donbass Residential Area with Heavy Artillery." The Russian media outlets claim that the Ukrainian army started shelling the "self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic (DPR)" at 19:50 GMT. Several videos purporting to show the shelling and its results were taken offline by Twitter and seemingly labeled as propaganda by some users.

One Twitter user wrote, "Russian state propaganda is spreading false reports that there is a massive shelling of civilian areas in the occupied Donetsk region."
