    Under your bed. No seriously, take a look.
    This is very insightful, thank you for the research. This raises my question once again; why such a strong response from Russia?

    Meanwhile, traffic has resumed as normal through the Kerch strait, after a brief delay allegedly due to either weather or a Russian blockade of Ukrainian ports (making the storm a complete coincidence).

    CI Team did a breakdown of the timelines of Ukrainian and Russian statements. Unfortunately it's only in Russian, I'm hoping they will do an English translation like they normally do. The interesting thing is that the statements only appear to be contradictory, this timeline shows that the two stories can be reconciled, with each side choosing to emphasize what they want to, and ignoring what they would rather not have in the media.

    Bellingcat's take on the incident. According to them, Ukrainian ships did enter Russian waters off of the east coast, as well as the territorial waters off of Crimea.
