Ukrainian military expert Lieutenant General Reserve Igor Romanenko claimed that Russia is preparing to wage war in Crimea. The increased military drills from Moscow, along with its mobilizations, has alerted NATO, with the alliance claiming relationships could be further strained. Is world war just around the corner?


Russia Wages War on Crimea

Ukranian official thinks Russia is trying to hide its plans for Crimea under military drills. According to Romanenko, Russia seems to be testing the capabilities of its troops in line with its plans.

“It’s called a check of military readiness, because if it’s a check, rather than military maneuvers, it means, that they do not need to invite foreign observers. They are now increasing the number of troops in Crimea and getting them fully operational. Troops and equipment are gotten fully operational for war pursuance only,” Sobytiya quoted the expert.

The report added that the Russian Federation continues to check the combat readiness of the armed forces of the Southern Military District.

NATO on High Alert

According to the Washington Post, NATO claimed that Russia has been increasing its unannounced military exercises, which also consequently further strain its relationships with NATO. According to NATO Deputy Secretary-General Alexander Vershbow, Russia has been conducting large drills without additional notification “with increasing frequency.”

The official noted that the drills are possible because of a loophole in a security agreement signed with Western countries. He added that the alliance wishes to “develop a more stringent regime to increase transparency and …predictability and a way to better stabilize what is a very unsatisfactory relationship with Russia.”

“We’ve lost the additional predictability that comes with that agreement,” said Vershbow.
