Russia's Putin threatens more "severe" attacks against Ukraine as missiles rain down on Kiev and other Ukrainian cities on the 229th day of the conflict in what Washington brands "utter brutality".
Social media users stirred alarm as they shared images that reveal an ongoing Russian build-up along its shared border with Ukraine.
The fire broke out when one vessel was transferring fuel to another, driving the crews from both ships to jump overboard. Sixteen of the 31 crew were Turkish nationals. At least some of the rest were Indian nationals, according to early reports.
Shipping traffic has resumed to and from Ukraine's ports on the Sea of Azov, says a Ukrainian minister while NATO allied foreign ministers meet to debate ways to dissuade Moscow from destabilising Ukraine.
