Tusk 'Sure' EU to Roll Over Sanctions Against Russia Over Kerch Row in December

The Kerch Strait incident took place on Sunday when three Ukrainian naval vessels, heading from the Black Sea to the Azov Sea, tried to pass through the strait without obtaining permission from Russia and thus illegally crossing the country's sea border.

European Council President Donald Tusk said on Friday he was sure that the EU leaders would roll out new sanctions against Russia due to Moscow's response to Ukraine's naval activity in the Kerch Strait.

"The de-escalation in the Sea of Azov is a cause of a grave concern to us, and of course Russia's use of force against Ukrainian ships is totally unacceptable… Europe is united in its support of Ukrainian sovereignty and territorial integrity. And this is why I am sure that the EU will roll over the sanctions against Russia in December," Tusk said at a press conference during G20 summit.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is as simple as the Ukrainian sailors having crossed into Russia's sovereign marine territory; they were wrong, period, end of discussion.

Unfortunately, the US and its European allies have nasty habit of accusing Russia for things Russia never did, and ultimately using that as the pretext for war.

I would like to see all aggrieved parties come together to step back from the precipice here, and for Poroshenko to ultimately admit that his sailors were dead wrong here, and make amends. Of course, this will not happen, because Poroshenko is the US's and NATO's "picador" when it comes to relations with Russia. The last thing we need... is another world war.Ac
