More than 20 Russian warships stage military exercises in the Black Sea as US condemns Kremlin plan to block the Kerch Strait as 'yet another unprovoked escalation'

More than 20 Russian warships today staged naval exercises in the Black Sea after the US condemned its plans to blockade the Crimea as 'yet another unprovoked escalation.'

Video showed frigate Admiral Essen launching cruise missiles after Vladimir Putin defied Western demands to ease tensions in Ukraine, where more than 100,000 Russian troops have deployed on the border.

The warships were joined by 50 Su-25SM3 fighter jets flying low across the water, which Russia claimed was routine defensive drilling, despite the presence of landing craft used for offensive amphibious action.
