Russia accuses Ukraine of provoking incident in Kerch Strait

MOSCOW, Nov 26 (Reuters) - Russia’s foreign ministry on Monday accused Ukraine of deliberately provoking an incident in the Kerch Strait near Crimea in which Russia seized three Ukrainian vessels.

Moscow will summon a senior Ukrainian diplomat to complain about the incident, foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on state television.

Russia on Sunday seized two small Ukrainian armoured artillery vessels and a tug boat, which Moscow said had illegally entered Russia’s territorial waters. (Reporting by Andrew Osborn and Maxim Rodionov; writing by Tom Balmforth; editing by)
