Ukraine, Poland To Hold Joint Air Force Drills

Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense has announced plans to hold joint drills of the Ukrainian and Polish air forces. Under the plan, Ukraine’s Mikoyan MiG-29 and Sukhoi Su-27 jet fighters will participate in the military exercises along with Poland’s F-16s and Mikoyan MiG-29st.
The Safe Sky 2014 drills are scheduled from May to July. The drills will be focused on the tactical aspects of intercepting air targets.
The latest move comes as Russia-backed troops are concentrating in Ukraine’s Crimea. The pro-Russian forces have taken over a number of Ukrainian military facilities there.
Poland has been one of the most vocal critics of the Russian intervention in Ukraine.
