Earlier on Sunday, Russia and Ukraine accused each other of breaking global law after Russian border guards tried and failed to stop Ukrainian ships circumnavigating Crimea en route to a Ukrainian port.

Russian Federation blockaded a strategic waterway to prevent three Ukrainian naval vessels from entering the Sea of Azov, in a sharp escalation of tensions over disputed waters around Crimea.

Both sides have recently increased their military presence in the Azov region, with Kyiv accusing Moscow of harassing ships heading for Ukrainian ports such as Mariupol.

The move came after three Ukrainian navy ships made what the Russian coast guard has called an unauthorised crossing through "Russian territorial waters".

"Russian coast guard vessels (...) carried out openly aggressive actions against Ukrainian navy ships" during the transit, the Ukrainian navy statement said.

The latest incident comes after the Ukrainian navy in September complained of "acts of provocation" by Russian border guards against its ships taking the same route.

But the FSB said the Ukrainian ships "illegally entered a temporarily closed area of Russian territorial waters" without authorization.

The FSB, which is responsible for maintaining Russia's borders, denounced the Ukrainian vessels' actions as a deliberate provocation aimed at creating "conflict situations" in the region.
