Kremlin reacts to canceled Trump-Putin meeting

Kremlin reacts to canceled Trump-Putin meeting

Mr Trump had previously cast the Buenos Aires sit-down into doubt, telling The Washington Post he might cancel seeing Mr Putin after Russian Federation seized Ukrainian vessels and crew members over the weekend, sparking global condemnation and a sharp escalation in tensions between the neighbours.

Ukraine says Russian Federation is deliberately blockading Mariupol and another Ukrainian port on the Sea of Azov, Berdyansk. He will also be tiptoeing through political landmines, and avoiding a lot of curious (and perhaps gloating) foreign leaders who will doubtlessly be wondering how long he can last in office.

He said the Russian delegation was already on its way to the summit. As Russian tsar, as he sees himself, his empire can not function without Ukraine. "Hopefully, that will be resolved soon so that productive conversations can begin", Sanders told reporters in Buenos Aires.

He said he would get a final report during the flight on the tension in the region after Russian Federation seized Ukrainian vessels near Crimea on Sunday.

The Kremlin denied it was restricting shipping, saying it hadn't heard of any problems.

In the interview with Bild, Mr Poroshenko said Vladimir Putin wanted "nothing less than to occupy the [Azov] sea".

The G-20 is a recent and somewhat odd institution-probably the first major global institution to be created without a dominant USA role as parent or midwife.

On Monday, Nato chief Jens Stoltenberg called on Russian Federation to free the Ukrainian ships and sailors and said Moscow should realise the "consequences of its actions".

"So there is already a lot of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation in the Black Sea, and we will continue to assess our presence in the region".

Brexit deal may hamper trade between US, UK
May will tell the chamber "with absolute certainty" that "there is not a better deal available". She is also due to travel to Wales.

Trump is scheduled to meet Putin at the G20 summit in Buenos Aires at the end of this week, but warned it would depend on the results of a report being prepared by his national security advisers about Russia's seizure of three Ukrainian ships.

German chancellor Angela Merkel on Thursday said the confrontation off Crimea was "entirely the doing" of Putin.

The decision appeared to catch the Kremlin by surprise.

The cancellation comes in response to a violent incident on Sunday near the Kerch Strait, which separates the Black Sea from the Sea of Azov.

On November 25, three Ukrainian navy ships illegally crossed Russia's border and tried to carry out some illegal actions in Russian territorial waters later in the day. This involved plans to build a Trump property in Moscow.

Relations between Washington and Moscow have been badly strained since Russia's annexation of Crimea from Ukraine in 2014.

Kiev and Moscow continue to trade barbs, amid accusations of a large-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine. Major fighting ended with a 2015 ceasefire, but deadly exchanges of fire are still frequent.

Criticising the US administration for using the dollar as a pressure tool, he said Russian Federation and its trade partners are working to create interbank payment systems independent of SWIFT.

The Nord Stream 2 project is a potentially serious problem for Ukraine, which now earns large transit fees from piping Russian gas to Europe and stands to lose out.
