Ukraine starts missile launch drills near Crimea


Baku – APA. Kiev has begun missile launch drills near the border with Crimea, the Ukrainian military has announced.

 

“The launches have already begun, so everything is going according to plan,” Vladimir Kryzhanovsky, the head of the southern branch of the Ukrainian military’s press-service said on Thursday, as cited by TASS news agency.

 

According to Kryzhanovsky, the drills will test S-300 medium-range surface-to-air missiles. 


“The purpose of the exercise is to gain experience in using these anti-aircraft missile systems and to check the quality of the rockets, which were repaired, as well as to improve the skills of the anti-aircraft missile troop units,” he said.

 

Earlier, the Russian Defense Ministry submitted a military-diplomatic note to the Defense Attaché at the Embassy of Ukraine, in which they protested the illegal restrictions on the use of Russian airspace imposed by Ukraine during the exercises.
