Moscow, Aug 4 IANS | 1 month ago

Russia is all set to conduct military exercises this week near the Ukrainian border, BBC reported Monday.


The Russian defence ministry announced that the military exercises will involve 100 aircraft in the west of the country near the Ukraine border.

Fighter jets, helicopters and the latest bombers would take part in the operation, a spokesperson said.

The Russian official, however, did not mention Ukraine in his announcement.

The exercise is the first in a series aimed at improving the unity of the air force. It would involve Sukhoi Su-27 and MiG-31 fighter jets, Mi-24 and Mi-28 helicopters and Russia's newest frontline bomber, the Sukhoi Su-34, the official told the Interfax news agency.

Russia has previously been accused of boosting its troops and weaponry along the border with Ukraine.

Ukraine and the western governments accuse Russia of supplying heavy weapons and volunteers to the pro-Russian rebels, who have declared independence from Kiev.
