russia has started prosecuting several ukrainian sailors who were captured during a tense standoff near russian controlled crimea russian ships rammed ukrainian vessels latest seizing them and their crew a crimean court has ordered at least twelve of the sailors to be held for two months andrew simmons has more from kiev. russia says this is one of many confessions by ukrainian sailors about how their navy illegally entered its territorial waters despite warnings there's outrage in ukraine its foreign minister says these men are obviously talking under duress while as he puts it under the rules of russia's f.s.b. security service but they're prisoners of war covered by the geneva convention and should have access to the international red cross most of the servicemen and up
6:06 am
here in simferopol before a court that gave out detention orders for two months while cases are investigated . internationally the pressure on russia appeared to have no effect on its foreign minister sergei lavrov visiting paris the au-prince crystal if the ukrainian side like its partners in europe is interested in avoiding such situations in the future it is obviously necessary to send a signal to kiev not to allow such a provocation that is not for us to do but for those who maintain close contact with the korean authorities mr lavrov hadn't appeared willing to meet a request made by the french foreign minister. sergey lavrov. told sergey lavrov that a gesture is expected from russia at the prisoners and the boats being held must be free to soon as possible but i will also call my ukrainian counterpart to encourage him to seek a deescalation in this region. there may be no confrontation now in the strait but
6:07 am
the words exchanged by both sides are getting more volatile ukraine's navy is saying the russians was shooting to kill on sunday russia is warning that limited martial law to be imposed in parts of ukraine on wednesday could escalate the conflict and now it's emerged that not all the arrested crew are sailors ukraine's state security service the s.b. you said. it had counter-intelligence offices all board and it also said that two missiles were fired by warm two russian fighter jets at the boats and one of those agents was seriously injured what happens next to the detained ukrainian servicemen may be unclear what's certain is that without their release ukraine will continue to ramp up pressure for some sort of international action against russia for what happened off the shores of an extraordinary andrew symonds kiev
6:08 am
under a communications director at the ukrainian congress committee of america he joins me now from new york thank you very much for speaking to us does ukraine risk when you conflict or perhaps opening up a new front in an existing conflict with russia ukraine isn't risking anything to use the words of russia at this point which no international body is accepting is a farce to ask a crane to deescalate would be asking a crane to first occupy a piece of land in the russian federation equal to the size of belgium that's not something you claim is done ukraine has not displaced over two million russian citizens right i mean we don't use words like i ask you about your your concern regarding the nature of the rhetoric we're hearing right now we just had a report there from our correspondent in kiev he was saying that there is a sense of escalation you have ukraine's navy talking about russians shooting to
6:09 am
kill russians saying that limited martial could escalate the conflict is this something that ukraine can afford. ukraine has no choice but to operate in this way if it's being invaded it has been invaded daily for over four years it is simply responding to the fact that its own citizens are being killed they're being shot at on a daily basis and now what we see are open russian military personnel with russian insignia in russian ships attacking ukrainian boats that have not been armed i want to underscore the fact that these boats had their their their artillery disarmed from the boats and they were merely looking for the right of way which russia promised months ago. we can i put to you that the counter-argument the kremlin and also some ukrainian opposition figure is saying that kiev is right now deliberately antagonizing russia for domestic political reasons to strengthen the
6:10 am
position of petro poroshenko in an election that he would otherwise lose the election there months away election collection nearing doesn't start until the new year this is not something that is done for political purposes on the face of it if in fact as i must repeat an armed ukrainian boats were rammed by russian military personnel and the question that russia poses to the world is why is ukraine and tag and izing it why how could you be antagonizing russia if russia is literally occupying a space of land as large as belgium in ukraine i take your point but we have seen that that the has been international condemnation of rush's recent actions but you know that international pressure doesn't have an effect on what the russians might do next so i put it to you is perhaps the the prudent measure to take steps
6:11 am
to perhaps deescalate the situation as opposed to opening up a new front with russia. the pressure is being put on by russia are very mild considering that they are a rogue state that has seven active conflict zones around this border the these sanctions that have been put on russia are nowhere near the sanctions on iran north korea even the united states has sanctioned cuba more than its sanctions russia and cuba is not a threat at the moment at all so what we are looking for is for actual sanctions to be ratcheted up the e.u. in fact could put a mic law in fact that's global in terms of all of the european countries could have a magnitsky act north stream too could be shot down this would have serious effect on russia and increase the pressure on the russians to stop invading ukraine because that is what they are doing ukraine is not antagonizing russia ukraine is being a sovereign country signing trade deals with the e.u.
6:12 am
it is not the other way around that ukraine has at any point attacked russia right well thank you for your views and thoughts under the communications director eat cranium congress committee and they're joining us from new york. well now mexico has called for the u.s. to conduct a full investigation after american authorities take asset asylum seekers across the border children were seen course in the crossfire prompting fierce criticism from democrats and aid groups some of the asylum seekers and now heading back home but many more are arriving in mexico further stretching resources at makeshift camps john heilemann and joins us now from a shelter entail juana on the us mexico border and john how would you describe the situation where you are the moment. we've been most of the time juiciness live in the bigger camp that's in a sports complex which is really overflowing and there's about five thousand seven hundred people but today we're coming to you from
6:13 am
a smallish oath we're actually within a church within the upper rooms of the church because as well as that big shelter from the authorities also local groups some of them churches some of them other residences some of them the shelters that already existed into one a really is a center in the city for migrants have been set up to cope with one thousand five hundred people we've come here because a family that we've been following all the way through is here you can probably see behind us little alvin here he's one of two babies that's been born since the caravan started his family's come all the way from home we've just been speaking to his mother. and they've arrived really of days of walking forty kilometers at a stretch to this place. which is really a bit of a happy space for them they've got a roof over their heads but you know going to see in our report what other people in the caravan facing in the bigger campaign the sports complex. of the
6:14 am
protests on sunday that breached the u.s. border. one hundred central americans with the pool today from mexico but the disturbances also spoke to russian others in the caravan who decided to go to the. bits can government trucks rolled out with those who'd had enough alex was among those waiting for the next ride home. if we jumped the wall they sailed the kick us out they don't want us here things get dangerous up to everything that happened yesterday so it's decided to go home but. for many sundays tear gas and police lines were reality check they know now just how hard it's going to be to get across and how much this u.s. administration wants to stop the few are equipped to wait for that loot change winter's coming but most have tents at best in this makeshift camp in. the cemetery conditions of rudimentary worsening local authorities worried about the threat of
6:15 am
disease. when we offered this temporary shelter it was kind of three thousand five hundred people maximum and now we have more than five and a half thousand people and obviously deaths generating a risk of inflictions we could have problems with sickness and also with security. they can't wait for the caravan to go along with many others had to be one of the sun the central border crossing point is the busiest in the western hemisphere but the u.s. authorities have already shut it down a couple of times since the caravan arrived and locals worried that if i keep happening it's going to really hit the economy head. but even as some members of the caravan leave to one of the others it's just getting here the new arrivals have to sleep outside on the pavement become snow completely full do you know it was cold and really uncomfortable for the children especially with the g. get west in the morning it's enough to make anyone give up but many of these people are fleeing from it poverty or violence they still aren't ready to go back. and
6:16 am
john when you speak to people that what is your sense of the general kind of atmosphere and sentiment clearly resources a strain people don't have the supplies they need they're under a great deal of pressure how determined are they to stay where they are. i think definitely the day of the sunday after what happened in the images that you just saw people there were definitely a little bit down thinking that it wasn't going to be possibly not as easy as possible so they thought to get to be other side and yesterday particularly we saw a lot of people in queues outside of the united nations tent asking for. enough of the code of being in the camp. of the scenes that you saw on sunday in which they tried to get to the border and obviously were pushed back by among other things
6:17 am
tear gas but i think people are starting to recover a little bit today there's been less people we've heard asking for. their rule going to be a statement that's going to be read out by the people in the caravan saying that they have to keep going because if they go back to their own countries they're likely to be killed i think we have to add here as well that one of the reasons that people are fleeing from their countries is violence but another reason the a lot of people are going is poverty they just haven't got enough in their own countries to put food on the table now that's going to be a problem when they ask for asylum in the united states because legally. poverty is one of the causes. for asylum in that country so this is something i think that's going to carry on here for quite some time as people realize who can get into the united states who can qualify for asylum and who's not going to be able to do that and who my instead be able to stay in mexico on the humanitarian visas so this is
6:18 am
really an ongoing situation but it's taking. place you store in our report generating situations really. things are getting here this summer three conditions are getting more difficult there's not a lot of food for people to really with so this is a question about how long they can wait it out. thank you very much for giving us a sense of what it's like for people there in that shelter at tijuana john home and you know that is there still ahead a british academic jailed in the u.a.e. flies home thanking his wife his supporters and u.k. officials for securing his release france's president vows to stick by his controversial fuel tax rise after a weekend of violent protests and sport heading for chests all may gather in the champions he can't be separated far over here with that story.
