Deputy Defense Minister Alexander Dublian admitted that Russia can implement its threat to launch a missile and hit in the case if Ukraine conducts the planned missile firing exercises over the Black Sea on December 1-2. Dublian said in a comment to Ukrainian News.

"Based on their actions over the years, one can expect a lot of wrong and negative actions from Russia", said the Deputy Minister.

At the same time, he said that Ukraine planned to fire in accordance with all international norms, which may mean that the Ministry of Defense did not refuse to conduct the drills.

"I repeat, we do not violate any international norms, including the period during the shooting", Dublian said.

The newspaper notes that he did not answer on the direct question whether Ukraine will cancel the planned shooting.
