The US to the United Nations says the Security Council called for an emergency meeting after Russia confirmed they seized three Ukrainian naval ships by force in a strait near Moscow-annexed Crimea.

 The meeting was said to have been requested by both Russia and Ukraine.

 Ukraine's navy had accused Russia of the Poounprecedented incident, including firing on its vessels in the Kerch Strait, a narrow waterway that gives access to the Sea of Azov that is used by both countries.

 "In order to stop the Ukrainian military ships, weapons were used," Russia's FSB security service said, confirming that "three Ukrainian navy ships were boarded and searched."

 Ukraine's navy said the incident took place as two small warships and a tugboat were heading through the strait for the port of Mariupol.

 It said a Russian border guard vessel rammed the tugboat in "openly aggressive actions" and then fired on the ships, immobilizing all three.

 It also said the Kerch Strait was blocked by a tanker, and that Russian military aircraft were flying over the area.

 Ukraine said six of its soldiers were injured.
