Ukrainian military intelligence reports that several months ago in Crimea, Russian troops conducted military drills, during which they imitated moving nuclear ammunition to the peninsula. As is known, in late May this year, the Russian military deployed in Crimea missile launchers, airplanes and naval vessels that can launch nuclear missiles.
‘Since spring 2014, there has been no confirmed data on supplying nuclear ammunition onto the territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea. However, the drills that took place in Crimea since early 2016, especially the exercises conducted in May and April, reportedly included such practice, as the troops imitated the mechanism of supplying the nuclear ammunition to Crimea’, said Vadym Skibitsky, Deputy Head of the Chief Intelligence Department.
As 112 International reported, Russia is likely to deploy advanced nuclear-capable missiles in its European exclave of Kaliningrad by 2019, thus adding more fuel to the fire in relations with the West.
