Britain condemns Russia's "act of aggression against" Ukraine - PM May's spokesman
"We condemn Russia’s act of aggression ... This incident provides further evidence of Russia’s destabilising behaviour in the region," Prime Minister Theresa May's spokesman told reporters.
"The UK position is clear, ships must be allowed free passage to Ukrainian ports in the sea of Azov. We urge all parties to act with restraint. Russia must not be allowed to use force to exert greater pressure on Ukraine."
British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt tweeted that the incident showed Russians "contempt for international norms and Ukrainian sovereignty". (Reporting by Kylie Maclellan, writing by William James)
