From Newsweek:

“Ukraine has launched a missile drill in the south, near Crimea, despite repeated warnings by Russian state media that this risks incurring Moscow’s retaliation.

The two-day drill off the Black Sea coast of Ukraine’s Kherson region started on Thursday morning, after Russian state-run news agency Tass reported that Russian anti-missile systems in the region were on high readiness to fire at any perceived threats. A source in Russia’s Black Sea Fleet who did not wish to be named also told Russian state news agency RIA Novosti that Moscow had deployed missile-carrying ships nearby as a precaution.”
