Ukraine prepares missile test near Crimea, angering Russia


Baku-APA. Ukraine was due to start two days of missile tests on Thursday - a move that has angered Russia, prompting it to put its air defense forces on high alert on the annexed Crimea peninsula, APA reports quoting Reuters.

 

The disagreement marks a fresh escalation in tensions between the one-time allies, whose relations collapsed in 2014 after Russia seized Crimea and backed pro-Russian separatists fighting in eastern Ukraine.

 

Ukraine says the tests in its southern Kherson region, bordering Crimea, are legitimate and will be conducted within the framework of international obligations and treaties.
