Russia’s President Vladimir Putin said the clash between Russian and Ukrainian military ships was a result of foreign nations’ failing to hold Kiev accountable for bad behavior as long as it remains confrontational towards Russia. The remarks were the first made by the Russian leader since the confrontation in the Kerch Strait, a narrow passageway between the Black Sea and the Azov Sea, where a strategic bridge connecting Crimea with mainland Russia is located. “The authorities in Kiev are selling anti-Russian sentiment with quite a success today. They have nothing else to do,” Putin said during a business forum in Moscow.
