Russia: We're deploying missiles to Crimea because of Ukraine

Trump faces China trade showdown, Russia, Saudi tensions at G-20

Ukrainian president warns of threat of 'full-scale war' with Russia

The RIA news agency said the missiles could be ready by the end of the year.

A court in Crimea on Tuesday ordered 12 of the 24 Ukrainian seamen held in custody.

The two leaders' last meeting in Finland in July ended in a freakish press conference in which Trump appeared to accept Putin's denials of Russian interference in United States elections, prompting widespread criticism from across the political spectrum back home and increased scrutiny on the upcoming talks in Buenos Aires.

The Ukrainian parliament late on Monday, November 26, voted in favor of Poroshenko's request for the introduction of martial law in border areas for 30 days.

Moscow will soon deploy more of its advanced S-400 air defence systems in Crimea, a military official said.

Russia and Ukraine traded blame after Russian border guards on Sunday opened fire on three Ukrainian navy vessels and eventually seized them and their crews.

The Ukrainian parliament voted late on November 26 to impose martial law for 30 days in the provinces that President Petro Poroshenko said are the most vulnerable to "aggression from Russian Federation".

"They have nothing else to do", Putin said during a business forum in Moscow. Earlier this week, Russian state television broadcast separate interviews with three of the seamen, who said the Russian coast guard repeatedly warned them that they were violating Russia's territorial waters and urged them to leave.

The Kremlin called the introduction of martial law a "reckless" act that "potentially could lead to the threat of an escalation of tension in the conflict region in the southeast" of Ukraine.

She also drew further attention to Nord Stream 2, the $11 billion pipeline to carry Russian natural gas directly to Germany under the Baltic Sea, bypassing Ukraine, and said the deal should be "reviewed" as it "helps the Russian government".

The strait is the only route for ships traveling between the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov, where Ukraine has several ports.

"We constantly assess what more we can do because Russian Federation has to understand that its actions have consequences", Stoltenberg said, without elaboration on specific consequences, in response to a Kyiv Post question in Brussels.

He said: "I think it reflects Washington's tendency to indulge any and all action taken by the Kiev regime, even inciting them to provocative actions".

"Ukraine is under threat of full-scale war with Russia", Poroshenko said. The US president said on Tuesday he might cancel the meeting a a result of the incident, but the Kremlin said on Wednesday it thought the talks would proceed as planned.

In Crimea, nine of the captured Ukrainian seamen were expected to face court hearings in the regional capital of Simferopol later Wednesday.

Erdoğan listened to all three leaders and conveyed his concern over the tensions, the source added.
