The UK Ministry of Defense on Sunday evening hinted that Russian forces have blockaded Ukraine’s Black Sea coast, cutting the nation off from international maritime trade.

An intelligence update posted to the Ministry’s Twitter on Sunday said “Russian naval forces have established a distant blockade of Ukraine’s Black Sea coast, effectively isolating Ukraine from international maritime trade.”

Meanwhile the US Secretary of State Antony Blinken condemned Russia’s attack near Ukraine’s border with Poland early Sunday, calling for the “brutality” to stop as war inches closer to NATO’s doorstep.

The Russian bombardments have continued unabated despite efforts by world leaders and the United Nations General Assembly to dissuade Vladimir Putin from the attack in Ukraine.
