Western nations have rallied behind Ukraine after Russia fired on Ukrainian ships and seized 23 sailors in the Black Sea off the coast of the Russian-controlled Crimean Peninsula.
Ukrainian officials insist it was Russian border guards who first rammed into and opened fire on the three Ukrainian navy vessels as they were trying to make their way from the Black Sea toward a Ukrainian port.
President Poroshenko's office described the Russian action against the Ukrainian navy ships as "an act of aggression aimed at deliberately escalating the situation in the waters of the Sea of Azov and the Kerch Strait", and called for global condemnation of Moscow and the imposition of new sanctions.
Ukrainian Navy ships which entered Russian waters off Crimea's shores had counterintelligence officers on board, Kiev's security service admitted.
One of them was clearly reading from a teleprompter.
His call came as Russian President Vladimir Putin warned Ukraine against any "reckless acts" after Kiev declared martial law in response to Moscow's seizure of three of its navy vessels.
The confrontation is a risky development in the conflict pitting Ukraine against Moscow and Russian-backed rebels in the east of the country.
The Ukrainian parliament on Monday adopted a motion by the president to impose martial law for 30 days after Sunday's clash between the two rivals in the Kerch Strait, which links the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov.
Several countries have condemned Russia's actions on Monday, and the UN Security Council failed to agree a Russian-proposed agenda, and instead discussed a Ukrainian proposal on the issue.

"Obviously we have not recognized the annexation of Crimea, and therefore we can not recognize the territorial waters of Crimea as the territorial waters of Russia", Slovak Foreign Minister Miroslav Lajcak told DW at the forum. "This should be the stance of a court", the spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, told reporters during a conference call.
More than 10,000 people have been killed since the Moscow-backed insurgency broke out in April 2014 following Russia´s annexation of Crimea from Ukraine. Ukraine said it had notified Russian authorities in advance of the three ships' movements - in line with the 2003 accord - and denied they had done anything wrong.
But Ukraine's foreign minister, Pavlo Klimkin, said "Ukraine will seek to settle the row in a peaceful manner", even though its armed forces have been put on alert.
Russia's actions are further evidence of its continued violation of global commitments, following on from the illegal annexation of Crimea in 2014 and the illegal construction of Kerch Bridge by Russian Federation earlier this year.
"Hence, there are no Russian borders in the area where the incident happened".
