Armed men in combat gear blocked access to two airports in Crimea on Friday. Ukraine believes they were sent by the Kremlin. Russian sources deny that.
Ukrainian authorities have detained Nadiya Savchenko, an ex-combat pilot in Ukraine's air force, on suspicion of planning an armed attack against the parliament. Savchenko had gained notoriety after her trial in Russia.
The UK nerve agent attack shows Russia has no "red lines" anymore, says Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin. In an interview with DW, he contends that Moscow's aggression against Kyiv could happen anywhere now.
Former German Chancellor Gerhard Schröder is unlikely to be punished for his Russian dealings, as Ukraine would like. But he's still coming under fire across the political spectrum in Germany.
Ukraine's chief prosecutor said Nadiya Savchenko planned to "finish off the survivors with automatic rifles." The ex-combat pilot has welcomed the claims, saying she fully backs a military coup against the government.
