Germany says Russian blockade of Kerch Strait ‘unacceptable’

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas calls a Russian blockade of access to the Sea of Azov “unacceptable” and urges an easing of tensions with Ukraine following a weekend flareup.

“The developments are troubling,” he tweets. “A Russian blockade of the passage to the Sea of Azov is unacceptable. It is important that the blockade be lifted. We call on both sides to deescalate.”
