Verbal war between Russian Federation and Ukraine escalates

Verbal war between Russian Federation and Ukraine escalates”

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday blamed the latest standoff with neighboring Ukraine on the presidential ambitions of Ukraine's leader, as the Russian military announced it was boosting its defenses in Crimea.

November 25, the FSB of Russian Federation detained three ships of the Naval Forces of Ukraine near the Kerch Strait. "We have no other information from our USA counterparts", Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told Russian state media.

But some European Union members, notably Poland, want Brussels to respond to the latest incident with another round of measures, which could be agreed when the bloc's foreign ministers meet next month. The meeting is agreed.

Volker said he has not received independent US verification of Ukraine's information, but believed "the data the Ukrainians have provided is quite clear".

"I am getting a report on that tonight and that will determine what happens at the meeting", Trump said.

Cilic, Croats Roll French for 2nd Davis Cup Win
The outcome was different though; Croatia emerged victorious this time, vanquishing the defending champions France 3-1 overall. The Davis Cup is set to adopt a new format from 2019 onwards, featuring 18 teams in one place contending for the title.

"Maybe I won't have the meeting (with Putin)", he is quoted as saying. Not to let [Ukraine] have the tomos [an official document on the Ukrainian-based church's independence], to make the church think that if there's martial law, then His Holiness will not give us anything.

"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".

Mr Klimkin, however, dismissed the allegations as more Russian disinformation as the martial law act only lasts for 30 days and the election period of campaigning does not start until January, so there is no overlap. He said Trump is "not going away".

"We do not like what's happening either way and, hopefully, it will get straightened out", Trump said, according to ABC news. Ukrainian president Poroshenko declared on 27 November that his country is near a "total war" with Russia.The UN has called both parties to de-escalation of the tension.

Putin said he also still hoped to meet Trump at the G20, while the Kremlin said the meeting was still being prepared and Washington had not informed Moscow it was off.

GM to Cease Production of Chevy Cruze at Lordstown Plant
The union representing the Oshawa auto workers says it will put up what it calls "the fight of our lives" to keep the plant open. The company will instead concentrate on trucks and SUVs, and will double its investment in electric and autonomous vehicles.

Russia says the Ukrainian vessels sparked the confrontation earlier this week by refusing to yield upon orders from Russian border forces to change their course inside Russian territorial waters (within 12 miles of Russia's coast).

Ukraine contends that its vessels followed worldwide maritime rules. In the video, the Russian sailors can be heard shouting "crush him" as the Russian vessel rams the Ukrainian tugboat. Three of the sailors were wounded but were not in serious condition.

On Tuesday, the White House warned Mr Xi against trying to wait out Mr Trump in the ongoing talks, suggesting the Chinese economy was not as resilient to a trade war as would be the US. But we will defend our soil from the Russian aggression.

Another sailor said that the actions of the Ukrainian crew were "provocative". "What they are saying now is not true", he told Ukrainian media.
