Ukraine-Russia joint military exercise in Black Sea reflects rapprochement with Kremlin
17:52 05/25/11

Re-starting naval military exercises with Russia is an indication of a rapprochement with Moscow, Serhi Kulyk of the Nomos think-tank told ZIK May 23.

He says the Ukrainian Army and Navy need any kind of training to keep fit.

"I don't think anything new can be learned by Ukrainians from the Russian - and this is not the goal of the exercise. What they can do, our servicemen can also do. But the exercise give a chance to practice skills," the expert said.

The strength of the naval contingents involved won't grow as there are no new Russian naval units on the peninsula, Kulyk said.

There was a break in the joint exercises with Russia during Viktor Yushchenko's watch.

The "Water-Way of Peace 2011" exercise kicks off today after an 8-year break.
