US warns Russia 'outlaw' actions in Ukraine jeopardize ties


(Worthy News) - The United States on Monday (Nov 26) warned Russia that "outlaw actions" like the seizure of Ukrainian ships in the Sea of Azov are preventing normal relations from developing between Washington and Moscow.

US Ambassador Nikki Haley told an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council that "the United States would welcome a normal relationship with Russia. But outlaw actions like this one continue to make that impossible."

Tensions have flared after the Russian navy on Sunday boarded and seized three Ukrainian ships off the coast of Crimea, accusing Ukraine of illegally entering Russian waters in the Sea of Azov. [ Source: Reuters (Read More...) ]

  1. Nikki Haley is a warhawk and she's still pushing Trump to take aggressive action against Putin. But guess what ....... it ain't gonna happen. Trump and Putin have an agreement that few know about, 'you take care of your side of the world, I'll take care of mine.'
    And BTW, the sea of Azov is sided by Russia on one side and Crimea (which also voted to cede to Russia) on the other. So RUSSIS OWNS THE STRAIT OF AZOV.
