Americans of German descent should show support for NATO and Chancellor Angela Merkel.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel has put the blame for the recent naval confrontation between Ukraine and Russia off Crimea squarely on Moscow.
She said it was “entirely the doing” of Russian President Vladimir Putin, and promised to raise the issue with him.
On Sunday Russia fired on Ukrainian ships sailing towards the Sea of Azov – which is shared between the two countries – and seized their crews.
Ukrainian leader Petro Poroshenko has urged Nato to send ships to the area.
President Putin accused him of creating the naval “provocation” to boost his ratings ahead of Ukraine’s 2019 elections.
President Poroshenko has implemented martial law across Ukraine’s border regions for 30 days in response to the crisis.
