Ukraine conflict : Political ice age in the Azov sea

The sea of Azov is a maximum of 14 meters of depth, the shallowest sea of the earth. In stark contrast, the diplomatic cliffs in the conflict to the sea of Azov, in which Germany and France in Berlin on Tuesday between Ukraine and Russia, mediated.
