Ukraine has stated that they fear that Russia is trying to capture one of their port cities and they believe an invasion could be imminent.
America's United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley lashed out at Russia on Monday at an emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council called to discuss a naval incident that happened between Russia and the Ukraine over the weekend.
“But outlaw actions like this one continue to make that impossible,” Haley said. “The United States will maintain its Crimea-related sanctions against Russia. Indeed, further Russian escalation of this kind will only make matters worse.”
She went on to add that Russia acted "illegally," in stopping the three Ukrainian ships — and that she'd spoken to both President Donald Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo about the incident, and both were in agreement that Russia was the aggressor.
“Sunday’s outrageous violation of sovereign Ukrainian territory is part of a pattern of Russian behavior," Haley concluded, referencing a series of attacks by Russian forces on Ukrainian interests which have left more than 100,000 Ukrainians dead since the "conflicts" began.
