Ukraine has said several ports in the Sea of Azov have been "partially unblocked" following a military standoff last week that led to 24 Ukrainian sailors being held by the Russian navy.

Ukraine's Infrastructure Minister Volodymyr Omelyan confirmed the minor easing of tension on Tuesday.

"Yes, Berdyansk and Mariupol ports are partially unlocked. Vessels make their way to the entrance and exit through the Kerch strait towards Ukrainian ports ... the movement is partially restored," Reuters news agency quoted the minister.
