Trump Threatens to Cancel Meeting With Putin After Russia-Ukraine Naval Clash

Donald and Melania Trump board Air Force One to traveling to Argentina to attend the G20 summit. Trump abruptly canceled a planned meeting with Vladimir Putin registering his disapproval of Russia's treatment of Ukraine and casting new uncertainty

The RIA news agency said the missiles could be ready by the end of the year.

Ukraine introduced martial law in parts of the country after the seizure of its ships saying it feared a possible Russian invasion.

Some of the sailors will face trial in Simferopol - the main city in Russian-annexed Crimea - on Tuesday, the peninsula's human rights ombudsman Lyudmila Lubina told AFP.

The move came after Russian forces fired on, boarded and captured three of Kiev's ships on Sunday off the coast of Crimea, sparking the most unsafe crisis between the ex-Soviet neighbours in years.

National Security adviser John Bolton said Mr. Trump will also be meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Argentine President Mauricio Macri, South Korea's Moon Jae-in, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Members of Parliament react as Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko (top) delivers a speech ahead of a parliamentary vote on imposing martial law in the country, in Kiev, Ukraine, November 26, 2018.

The United States has previously said that Russia's deployment of the missile systems to Crimea is "not good".

President Petro Poroshenko said the martial law will help "strengthen Ukraine's defense capabilities amid increasing aggression and according to worldwide law a cold act of aggression by the Russian Federation".

Putin on Tuesday warned Ukraine against any "reckless acts" after Kiev declared martial law in response to Moscow's seizure of the navy vessels. Officials say they will try the seamen for violating the Russian border and that they do not consider them prisoners of war. Moscow says the ships violated Russian territorial waters on objective and accuses Ukraine of plotting with its Western allies to provoke a conflict.

A total of 24 Ukrainian servicemen, including two security service agents, were arrested on Sunday, when three Ukrainian naval vessels in the Black Sea tried to enter the Kerch Strait to reach the Sea of Azov.

He said: "I think it reflects Washington's tendency to indulge any and all action taken by the Kiev regime, even inciting them to provocative actions".

Moscow has accused Kiev of planning Sunday's confrontation as a provocation aimed at drumming up support for Poroshenko ahead of elections next year and convincing Western governments to impose further sanctions on Russian Federation.

The European Union's hawks have called for more sanctions on Russian Federation after a fresh flare-up of tensions with Ukraine, but the divided bloc is not going to act swiftly, if at all, diplomatic sources said. "Maybe I won't have the meeting". The remaining sailors are due in court on Wednesday.

Erdoğan listened to all three leaders and conveyed his concern over the tensions, the source added.
