Putin Says Nyet To Releasing Ukrainian Sailors And Ships

Russian President Vladimir Putin says it's "too early" to release Ukrainian sailors and naval vessels seized in the Sea of Azov, and has accused the government of Ukraine of provoking an incident to distract from their own domestic problems.

In statements to reporters following the G-20 summit in Buenos Aires, Putin covered a wide array of topics, including oil production and a possible detente with the UK in the hopes that the nations can overcome differences and normalize relations.

On the topic of Ukraine, however, Putin took a harder stance over Moscow's refusal to release the 24 captured sailors - an international incident which resulted in US President Trump canceling a meeting with Putin amid the uproar (the two instead had a brief side-chat).
