three craney and vessels and has detained their crews pending trial in turkey has condemned the black sea off the coast of crimea as a russian act of aggression ukraine's president has declared martial law in the border regions he says is preparing for war. putting on a show of readiness ukrainian troops trenches near the russian border have been put on alert as martial law comes into effect. ukraine's president petro poroshenko visited a military training center urging his troops to get prepared for action many of them. will give them no chance to invade into ukraine. that's why today we are doing everything possible to provide extra financing of the armed forces. not to be outdone russia's defense ministry also released a video of training exercises in the south of the country. both sides are blaming
10:10 am
each other for provoking sunday's naval clash in the catch strait russian ships fired on and seized three ukrainian naval vessels capturing the crew. of ukrainian sailors have been charged with unlawfully entering russia and of being held pending trial western countries are calling for their release the united states special envoy for ukraine told d.w. that further sanctions against russia are on the table. again we've tried to ratchet up sanctions gradually in order to create pressure and to indicate that there is a way out that we would like to talk with russia that genuinely ending the conflict withdrawing its forces we establish security and then getting the minsk agreements implemented in the don't non-serious television. us president donald trump has threatened to cancel a planned meeting with russian president vladimir putin at this week's g.
10:11 am
twenty summit but russia says the meeting will occur as it's too important for both sides. or for the very latest now let's cross over to our moscow correspondent yury rachet oh last year we've got martial law in ukraine russian troops on the border new russian missile systems for crimea any idea where this is headed. i don't think we have to be afraid of a potential war or a huge huge military conflict between russia and ukraine oteri of course we're hearing determined statements on both sides in ukraine and russia we see on television a ukrainian president showing plant species which he says prove that the russians are preparing an attack but i don't believe that moscow now wants to annex eastern ukraine for example like a did with grammy in twenty fourteen first it's all first of all it's important pointing out that it's still unclear what exactly happened in this trade of carriage some questions are still open secondly it russia wanted to annex eastern
10:12 am
ukraine it could have done it as twenty fourteen when they did it annexed crimea and that time would have been the simpler simpler militarily and politically from the russian point of view in the meantime moscow isn't paying much attention to the dawn bust because russia is fighting on many other friends after all the political situation has changed as well a lot since twenty fourteen so moscow is an outcast on the international stage not a month passes without the new sanctions from the west so it would be a very inconvenient time for russia to carry out any kind of invasion at the moment here you mentioned sanctions or there's talk of imposing new sanctions on russia and fully implementing the existing ones how much could that hurt russia. i don't think new sanctions would do any good for us the russia is used to sanctions at this point second it would only bring russia further away from the minsk peace agreement the agreement might never have been really amounted to but all politicians at all levels terry emphasized that there is no alternative to it

10:14 am
meant medical stroll during the negotiations on the means peace agreement russian president putin also has great respect for america she told it to her in the fold after the conflict last weekend and i think that of all western politicians terry maracle has the best chance for mediating in these issues yuri thank you so much for the moscow correspondent yury rachet oh there. norwegian chess superstar magnus carlsen has successfully defended his crown at the world chess championship in london the twenty eight year old beat american fabiano caruana in three straight rapid chess tiebreaker all in wednesday. twelve games had not managed to produce a winner with all twelve indeed in draws a novelty and a world championship but it wasn't quite unexpected magnus carlsen and challenger fabio carolina were the two best chess players in the world it's possible defending
