A joint Russian-Ukrainian government committee has been unable to resolve the two countries' territorial row. As a Rosbalt correspondent reports, the two sides did not reach an agreement about the border along the bed of the Azov Sea. Deputy Ukrainian Foreign Minister Alexander Motsak said Ukraine will not allow its interests in the region to be manipulated in any way.
