"Australia is very concerned about the recent escalation in the Kerch Strait. We call on Russia to release Ukrainian ships and sailors, respect the lawful navigation rights and ensure unhindered access to Ukrainian ports," Permanent Representative of Australia to the OSCE Brendon Hammer said at the 25th OSCE Ministerial Council meeting in Milan, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
