WARSAW (Reuters) - Russia has breached international rules through its aggressive behaviour towards Ukrainian naval ships in the Azov Sea, Poland’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said on Monday.

“With full force we condemn Russia’s aggressive behaviour and we call on (the country’s) leadership to respect international law,” the ministry said in a statement.

Russia seized three Ukrainian naval ships off the coast of Russia-annexed Crimea on Sunday after opening fire on them and wounding several sailors, igniting a dangerous new crisis between the two countries.
