10:05 am
detail this was voted through late last night in pretty chaotic parliament tree assembly it wasn't clear for a long time if it would actually get the number the required number of votes it did . but whether this is just an option the government is giving itself for the case of escalation with russia or if we're going to see a direct impact on everyday ukrainians lives we still don't know and this is what will come out of today really. western nations are calling on russia to release the ukrainian sailors and ships that has seized is that likely to happen. well terry it doesn't seem like there will be a concession on that issue from russia any time soon especially because russia considers that it captured those vessels and those sailors absolutely legally they absolutely here in russia see that they acted correctly and according to russian and international law in fact the russian side is very much been categorized grise
10:06 am
in what happened as the ukrainian invasion you have to remember that russia considers the azoff sea to be russian waters after the annexation of crimea in two thousand and fourteen which of course ukraine does not recognize and russia has also been categorizing ukraine as the aggressor in this situation yesterday we saw a statement from the f.s.b. the russian security services saying that actually it was the ukrainian vessels that pointed their guns at the russian vessels first and threatened them so much russia categorizing ukraine as being in the wrong and ukraine as being the aggressor here so i don't think any concessions on the crew and the vessels that were captured and time soon terry. point rusher regards been there as a ukrainian invasion explain to us how the disputed waterway we're talking about
10:07 am
here is shared and why it's so important to you chris. well terry obviously before the russian accession crimea twenty fourteen you had ukrainian control crimea on the western side of the strait and then the russian mainland of the eastern side and they shared control over this waterway to the sea of us all of which then also see is shared by ukraine by. then the russian side since russia took over crimea basically they have also had defected control over access the sea of as of something that ukraine in the west of the do not recognize but this is crucial not just for crimea this is not just something about sovereignty in an abstract sense this is also about us about the other conflict that ukraine has with russia because tens of thousands of jobs depend on the pull. of being able to get trade in and out if it's the sea turns into a military zone with no real access from outside that could really destabilize the
