KERCH, Crimea (Reuters) - Three Ukrainian naval vessels seized by Russia off the coast of Russia-annexed Crimea on Sunday are being held at the Black Sea peninsula’s port of Kerch, a Reuters witness said on Monday.
People in naval-style uniforms could be seen around the vessels, which bore no sign of damage, the witness said.
Russia on Sunday seized two small Ukrainian armored artillery vessels and a tug boat, which Moscow said had illegally entered Russia’s territorial waters.
