Russia builds up its Azov flotilla and blocks access for ships to the Ukrainian ports on the Azov coast.

"Now they [Russians] actively create the Azov flotilla, actually blocking the movement of ships in the direction of our Azov ports. For this, landing and missile ships have been deployed from the Caspian Sea," Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council Secretary Oleksandr Turchynov said during the IX National Expert Forum in Kyiv, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

He also noted that Russia had built up its military presence in the occupied Crimea. Moreover, "the construction of the Kerch Bridge allows for a much faster expansion of the military contingent located in Crimea," he added.
