August 4 , 2014
Russia is holding a military exercise near Ukraine’s border from Monday to Thursday.
At least 100 fighter jets and bombers will take part in the exercise in the central and western districts of the country. MiG-31 fighters and Su-34 bombers would be used, the air force spokesperson said.
The announcement came as Ukrainian troops pushed forward to seize control of the rebel-held city of Donetsk, one of the last major urban centers still in the hands of the pro-Russian fighters.
