Russia Warns US To Stop War Games In Ukraine Or Face 'Explosive Consequences'

Russia is warning the United States that the military exercises in Ukraine could spark “explosive consequences.” The war games began in the western region of the nation this week. Vladimir Putin‘s officials also stated that the exercises could derail the peace process ongoing in the separatists’ eastern region of the country.

U.S. Military and Ukrainian troops are reported utilizing 1,800 soldiers from 18 different countries in the exercises scheduled for today. The activities were reportedly aimed at bolstering the morale of the armed forces amid an ongoing 15-month tense conflict with pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine.

The warning from the Russian foreign ministry was issued just several hours after the U.S. Military training exercises began near Ukraine and Poland border earlier today. The armed forces drills reportedly include NATO nation soldiers and the members of the Ukraine military — under U.S. command.

Concerns that we are embroiled in a new arms race, a second cold war, and World War 3 is looming on the horizon have surfaced. Click here to read the rest of my Russia warning to US report on the Inquisitr.
