Russia Plans To Deploy More S-400 Missiles To Disputed Crimea Peninsula

Donald Trump has said that he will not meet Russian president Vladimir Putin

On Monday, Ukraine's government announced that it would declare martial law in 10 of the regions that are believed to be at risk of a Russian military invasion.

On Wednesday, he then went on to accuse Ukraine of stirring up anti-Russian sentiment as a way to placate its population, saying that if the Ukrainians wanted to eat babies, then the government would let them do that too. The controversial measures will last for 30 days and will restrict some civil liberties such as the right to protest. Later in the day, following Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko's order, the Council of National Security and Defense of Ukraine made a decision to impose martial law in the country. Others are expected to face the court later on Wednesday. We're going to see.

Among other things, martial law gives Ukrainian authorities the power to order a partial mobilization, strengthen air defenses, and take steps "to strengthen the counterintelligence, counterterrorism, and counter-sabotage regime and information security".

USA president Donald Trump has suggested he may cancel his planned sit-down with Vladimir Putin over Russia's seizure of three Ukrainian naval ships last weekend.

Trump said he would be receiving a "full report" from his national security team on Russia's recent actions in eastern Ukraine and the Black Sea, and would decide afterward.

Ukraine's parliament voted Monday to impose martial law in parts of the country to fight what its president called "growing aggression" from Moscow, after a weekend naval clash off the disputed Crimean Peninsula in which Russian Federation fired on and seized three Ukrainian vessels amid renewed tensions between the neighbors.

The government has said the vote will not affect it bringing in the changes required by the court ruling more than 18 months ago. It now controls only six of Taiwan's cities and counties, compared to at least 15 for the opposition pro-China Kuomintang party.

The incident was the first major confrontation at sea in the long-running conflict pitting Ukraine against Moscow and Russian-backed separatists in the country's east. "They have nothing else to do", Putin said during a business forum in Moscow.

On that note, he asked Ukraine's allies to continue to show "solidarity" and make the cost of any Russian blockade unaffordable for the Kremlin. Russian border guards fired on three Ukrainian ships, seizing them and their 24 crewmembers.

Ukraine's naval commander, Igor Voronchenko, said the sailors were pressured into giving false evidence. They had been traveling from the Ukrainian port of Odessa, on the Black Sea, to the Ukrainian port of Mariupol on the Sea of Azov.

"Kiev is actively stirring up anti-Russian sentiment".

The foreign minister of Austria, which holds the rotating European Union presidency, said Tuesday that the bloc will next month consider further sanctions against Moscow over the flare-up.

Putin's spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said on November 28 that "preparations are continuing, the meeting was agreed". "But it will need to be reviewed", Karin Kneissl told reporters.
