A joint Ukrainian-Polish-British tactical exercise began on Tuesday at the Nova Demba military training grounds in Poland, the Ukrainian Defense Ministry said.
“The current exercises are aimed at practicing stabilization measures in a region controlled by opposing terrorist and extremist forces,” the ministry said in a statement.
I understand that these exercises have been planned for a long time.
However, in light of current events with Russia, they could have been postponed just to let things cool down a bit.
Apparently, any kind of "cooling down" of tensions between Russia and NATO is not what NATO and the US have in mind right now.
