The Us official representative to the UN Nikki Haley said that the incident in the Kerch Strait could worsen Russian-American relations.
Haley called the situation with the Ukrainian Navy ships “a dangerous escalation and violation of international law”.
“The continuation of the injection of tension by Russia, like what happened, will only make it worse, will further undermine Russia’s position in the world, will further spoil Russia’s relations with the United States and many other countries,” RIA Novosti quotes her.
Earlier, Haley said that the United States is concerned about the situation in the Kerch Strait.
On November 25, the FSB said that three Ukrainian ships illegally crossed the Russian border, after which they were detained.
