Merkel's Possible Successor Suggests Blockade of Russian Ships from Azov Sea

Kramp-Karrenbauer is expected to replace Angela Merkel as her party's next leader. As the fight for Merkel's CDU crown heats up, she adopted a more bellicose rhetoric than the German chancellor, who earlier pushed for the de-escalation of Russia-Ukraine tensions.

Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, secretary-general of the Christian Democrats, urged the European Union and the United States to consider barring Russian vessels coming from the Sea of Azov from entering their ports amid Moscow's naval standoff with Kiev.

Kramp-Karrenbauer, 56, who is tipped as one of possible candidates to succeed Merkel as the leader of her Christian Democratic Union party, suggested that a blockade should be implemented if it is proved that Russia was the aggressor.
