MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia's Foreign Ministry warned Ukraine on Thursday that there would be consequences if any Russian members of the crew of a Russian tanker detained in Ukraine were held in custody, RIA news agency reported.

The ministry said it was looking into the detention by Ukraine of a Russian tanker in the Ukrainian port of Izmail in order to weigh an appropriate response.

"If Russians have been taken hostage ... there will soon be consequences," the ministry was quoted as saying.
