The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine has developed a set of response measures of Ukrainian military to threats that may arise in connection with the Russian-Belarusian military exercises "West-2017", said Minister of Defense of Ukraine Stepan Poltorak.

It is reported by Interfax-Ukraine.

"We are watching the situation and know about all moves of Russian troops along our border. We understand what threats may arise and we will adequately respond to threats posed in connection with these exercises. The General Staff provided for number of measures that will be adequate to these threats," he told reporters in Kyiv.

The minister explained that the exercises potentially pose a threat because a large number of personnel of the Armed Forces moved towards the Ukrainian border, "and now all that is happening on our border, we consider as an unfriendly step".
