Moscow: Russia has announced that it will begin new drills from Saturday. These drills will involve “strategic forces”.

The defense ministry of the country on Friday said that President Vladimir Putin would be overseeing “strategic” missile drills on Saturday. This will include ballistic and cruise missile launches, according to reports.

The announcement comes amid fears and warnings that Russia may invade Ukraine in coming days despite vehemently denying such a situation.
