Russia has reopened the Kerch Strait near Crimea to shipping after it seized three Ukrainian naval ships nearby, the RIA news agency cited a port official as saying on Monday.

Russia blocked the strait off the coast of Russia-annexed Crimea on Sunday and seized two small Ukrainian armoured artillery vessels and a tug boat, which Moscow said had illegally entered Russia's territorial waters.
