Russia Ramps Up Pressure bu Blockading Ukraine (Yup - that is war)
Russia is blockaded, that is no longer allowed Ukrainian access to the sea, form their largest seaport in terms of goods.
Odessa is a bigger city on the sea, but Mariupol, which is being blockaded, handles more goods and is their access point to eastern Ukraine.
Which is the point. Russia has annexed Ukraine with no problem, and is now trying to do the same with regards to Eastern Ukraine.
Ukraine never should have given up it's nuclear weapons - that is the lesson hear that both North Korea and Iran are learning.
