Russia says Ukrainian missile drills are 'dangerous precedent': Interfax

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia’s foreign ministry said on Thursday Ukrainian missile tests near Crimea were a “dangerous precedent,” Interfax news agency reported.

Ukraine’s military said earlier on Thursday its two-day missile drills would avoid airspace over Crimea, sidestepping a possible confrontation with Russia which annexed the peninsula in 2014.
