Ukrainian leader says Putin wants his whole country, asks for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation help

Michael Cohen former personal lawyer to President Donald Trump leaves Federal court Tuesday Aug. 21 2018 in New York

Shortly after Air Force One left Washington for Argentina, President Trump canceled - via airborne tweets - a high-profile meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Their departure comes after the president spent 12 minutes talking to reporters before he left the White House, mainly about the fact his former personal attorney Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to lying to Congress about his business talks with Russian Federation during the 2016 campaign.

In Buenos Aires, which hosts the first G20 meeting to be held in South America, more than 20,000 police have been deployed to maintain order.

US President Donald Trump has abruptly cancelled a planned meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Argentina, citing Russia's treatment of Ukraine and casting new uncertainty over US-Russian ties.

Mr Trump is also set meet with Chinese president Xi Jinping over dinner this weekend, in what may be a pivotal session in determining if and how the ongoing trade dispute between their two countries could be resolved.

Relations between Washington and Moscow became the most strained since the end of the Cold War during the administration of President Obama who imposed sanctions for Russia's annexation of Crimea from Ukraine in 2014.

Trump said he would be receiving a "full report" from his national security team on Russia's recent actions in eastern Ukraine and the Black Sea.

In August he was convicted on eight counts of fraud, bank fraud and failing to disclose bank accounts. Sentencing in that case is scheduled for February 8.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko on Thursday accused Mr Putin of wanting to annex his entire country and called for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation to deploy warships to a sea shared by the two nations.

Trump suggested in an interview Tuesday that he might cancel the get-together after Russian ships opened fire on and seized three Ukrainian vessels near Crimea, in a clash that western European leaders have taken as an act of Russian aggression.

On Sunday, Russia seized two Ukraine gunboats and 1 tugboat sailing toward the Kerch Strait, the only entrance to the Sea of Azov, after failing to respond to lawful demands to stop, according to the Federal Security Service (FSB). The Kremlin, however, said Thursday it could not confirm this news.

World leaders are gathering in Argentina for their annual G20 summit amid new tension with Russian Federation over Ukraine and a USA trade row with China. Or French President Emmanuel Macron, now that Trump has all but called publicly for the right-wing nationalists to defeat him in the next election?

The Kremlin said it didn't have any other information about Trump canceling the meeting.

United Nations officials branded the move "illegal" and it was condemned by the West.

The G-20 meeting in Buenos Aires comes amid growing economic uncertainty and global displeasure with Trump's trade policy.
