EU executive calls on Russia to release Ukraine ships - spokeswoman

Updated: 26-11-2018 16:58 IST
The European Union's executive urged Russia on Monday to release three Ukrainian ships it seized at the weekend near the Crimean peninsula that it annexed from Ukraine in 2014.

The European Commission's spokeswoman stressed that the bloc does not recognise Russia's annexation of Crimea and said Russia was obliged to unblock the Kerch Strait swiftly.

"We are taking this very seriously," the spokeswoman said.
