State Law in Ukraine: all you need to know
Recall that on the morning of November 25, the Russian Federation's border ships carried out aggressive actions against three Ukrainian Navy ships during their transfer from the port of Odessa to the port of Mariupol of the Azov Sea. Due to the intervention of the Russian Federation's border ships, the Ukrainian navy was damaged.
Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation accused the Ukrainian party of "dangerous maneuvers" entering the "closed waters of the territorial seas of the Russian Federation". After the incident, the authorities unilaterally closed the Kerch Strait for the passage of civilian ships.
On the same day, Ukrainian ships were shot and captured by Russian special forces. As a result of a collision with the FSB border forces of the Russian Federation in the Kerch Strait, six Ukrainian sailors were injured.
On November 26, the Verkhovna Rada voted for the establishment of martial law in the areas bordering the Russian Federation, along the Transnistrian part of the Ukrainian-Moldovan border, along the Black Sea and the Azov Sea.
On 27 November, the seafarer began a lawsuit to opt for precautionary measures – 15 out of 24 captured Ukrainian soldiers were arrested for two months. The Russian side accuses them of "illegally crossing the border of Russia with a group of people after a prior settlement," for which it faces up to six years in prison. At the same time, the official Kiev considered as prisoners of war.
