This is for "bringing crisis situations under control", says Russian President
Russian army starts a crash exercise. It means that Southern, Western and Central military regions, Northern fleet, and other army resources should remain on high alert. They will spend several days checking the forces readiness. After that, soldiers are going to move to training camps and other regions.
The aim of the exercises is to check the army's ability to deploy self-reliant rapid response. The number of Russian forces near Ukrainian borders will also begin to upscale. The training is supposed to last until August 31. Moscow says they informed military attachés of bordering countries about the exercises.
