FRANCE 24 live news stream: all the latest news 24/7
Last month, a naval incident saw Russia shoot openly at Ukrainian military personnel for the first time and seize 24 Ukrainian sailors. Ukraine, in response, has declared martial law in ten regions, made good on promises to create an independent Ukrainian Orthodox Church, and ended a treaty of friendship with Russia that was still in force.

A programme prepared by Patrick Lovett and Gaëlle Essoo.
