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.

However, he later abruptly cancelled, citing Russia's failure to return the Ukrainian ships and sailors it seized last weekend during a confrontation on the Kerch Strait.

President Vladimir Putin insisted Wednesday that Russian forces were in the right to seize three Ukrainian ships last weekend, but President Donald Trump expressed "deep concern" at Moscow's actions against a United States ally. The US president added, however, that he looked forward to a meaningful summit as soon as the Kerch strait situation is resolved.

Hopes of progress over tariffs in Mr Trump's expected talks with Chinese leader Xi Jinping have been dampened. Roughly an hour before it was posted, he told reporters he would "probably" meet with Putin, despite his displeasure with Russian actions against Ukraine.

The administration of then President Barack Obama imposed sanctions on Russian Federation for its annexation of Crimea from Ukraine in 2014.

Limited martial law in Ukraine is in place for 30 days, and Russian Federation said Wednesday it was strengthening air defense and early warning radar systems on the Crimean Peninsula, which Moscow annexed from Ukraine four years ago.

The Kremlin, however, said Thursday it could not confirm this news.

"I think it's in President Trump's interest to have this meeting be viewed as a success", said David Dollar, a senior fellow in the John L. Thornton China Center at the Brookings Institution.

But Trump also said he would get a report during the flight on the escalating tensions in the region after Russian Federation seized three Ukrainian vessels near Crimea on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko asked North Atlantic Treaty Organisation countries to send naval ships to the Sea of Azov to aid his country and "provide security" amid tensions with Russian Federation. 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 United States and the European Union have both imposed sanctions on Russia over its conduct towards Ukraine since 2014, when Moscow seized and annexed Crimea after a pro-Russian leader was toppled in Kiev.
