Russian troops hold military exercises along Ukraine borders

In what is likely to be seen as a show of force, Russian troops held military exercises in several regions near the Ukrainian border early on Thursday, March 13.

The overnight training comes amid heightened tension between Kyiv and Moscow over Ukraine, ahead of the upcoming referendum on Crimea’s status. Russia’s Defence Ministry said about 8,500 Russian troops were taking part in training drills involving artillery and multiple rocket launchers.
