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. "We reserve the right to operate freely in accordance with worldwide laws and norms", he added.

On Wednesday, the US Navy sailed the guided missile destroyer USS McCampbell near contested waters in the Sea of Japan Wednesday, an action that is bound to irk Russian Federation.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine has expressed its strong protest to the Russian Federation in connection with the armed attack and capture of the Ukrainian navy ships Berdyansk, Nikopol and the tug boat Yana Kapu and 23 crew members.

The action has further strained ties between Moscow and Kiev.

Commercial ships were moving through the Kerch Strait linking the Sea of Azov with the Black Sea, Infrastructure Minister Volodymyr Omelyan said.

"As stated in the letter, Parubiy thanked Pence "for the permanent support of Ukraine" and informed on the events of 25 November 2018, when the Russian Federation, violating the sovereignty of Ukraine and global law, attacked the Ukrainian boat "Berdyansk" and "Nikopol", as well as inshore tug "Yana Kapu", captured them, wounding and capturing Ukrainian sailors". Poroshenko responded by declaring 30-day martial law in much of Ukraine. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Monday that there were "no restrictions" on vessels traveling through the Kerch Strait.

In a statement by the Embassy of Ukraine in Nigeria, Mykola Yaremchuk, first secretary of the Embassy of Ukraine said the attack on the ships was carried out during a sea crossing from the port of Odessa to the port of Mariupol, in accordance with the provisions of all effective multilateral and bilateral global treaties and navigation rules. The USS Carney, an Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer, left the Black Sea at the end of August.

Under the rules of the treaty, ships of non-riparian countries can not remain in the Black Sea for more than 21 days.
