UN Security Council holds emergency meeting on Russia-Ukraine crisis
The UN Security Council will meet on Monday after Russia seized 3 Ukrainian ships in the Black Sea. Russia has blamed Ukraine for preparing and orchestrating provocations.
The incident sharply escalated tensions that have been growing between the two countries since Moscow annexed Crimea from Ukraine in 2014. Russia has since worked steadily to bolster its zone of control around the Crimean Peninsula. The Ukrainian navy says Russian ships fired on and seized two of its artillery ships. A tugboat was also seized, and two crew members were wounded.
