Ukraine's Foreign Ministry has appealed to the Budapest Memorandum guarantor countries (the United States, the United Kingdom and Russia) for urgent consultations over the Kerch Strait standoff.

The US military has asked that the State Department apprise Turkey of its probable plans to sail a warship into the Black Sea, a maneuver they said is an answer to Russia's gestures against Ukraine in the Kerch Strait, which links the Black Sea of Azov.

CNN cited three unnamed USA officials as the source for the report, which could not be immediately confirmed.

The notification will give the US Navy an option to enter the area, but it is not an indication that such action will be taken, the sources were quoted as saying in the report.
