Ukraine Military Conducts Training Drill, To Test "Combat Readiness" | Zero Hedge


Ukraine Military Conducts Training Drill, To Test “Combat Readiness” | Zero Hedge.

Just out from the Ukraining defense ministry:

  • UKRAINE ARMED FORCES CONDUCT TRAINING DRILL: DEFENSE MINISTRY
  • UKRAINE DEFENSE DRILL AIMED AT TESTING `COMBAT READINESS’: MIN

It may not be an abrupt ICBM launch, but it certainly increases the odds of some unintentional, or fully intentional, provocation between the Ukrainian and Russian militaries which as we have been following over the weekend, are amassing in very disturbing numbers in Crimea and, soon, east Ukraine.

For those who missed our coverage over the past few days, here are some of the clips foreshadowing this “drill” announcement. The first clip below captured the 80th Airborne Regiment out of Lviv moving out, direction mainland, preparing to repel foreign attack.

The next video shows what are allegedly Buk SAM batteries deployed in the Donetsk region, a city in Eastern Ukraine which in the past week has swayed between Ukraine and Russian authority.

The clip below shows the 95th Airborne brigade also moving out of their barracks in Zhytomyr in western Ukraine, heading East, with an impressive deployment of trucks and APCs.

Finally, 20 T-64 tanks preparing to depart in Bila Tserkva, a city in central Ukraine:
