Russia insists detained Ukrainian sailors will face trialRussia on Friday insisted that Ukrainian sailors it captured after seizing their vessels will go on trial for violating its maritime borders, despite international calls for their release. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the 24 Ukrainian sailors currently in pre-trial detention will be put in the dock for violations of Russian and international law. “When the investigation is over, there will be a trial,” he told reporters after a meeting in Milan of the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE).
