Russia: U.S. Practices Military ‘scenarios’ at Country’s Borders

Reuters reports that “Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu accused the United States on Thursday of working on military “scenarios” near Russia’s borders that he said were a source of grave concern.”  

“Interfax news agency quoted Shoigu as expressing surprise at a speech on Wednesday in which U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said U.S. armed forces ‘must deal with a revisionist Russia – with its modern and capable Army – on NATO’s doorstep.'”  

“Russia’s relations with the West have reached a post-Cold War low over the conflict in Ukraine, with Moscow denying accusations that it has supplied weapons and troops to back pro-Russian separatists in the east of the former Soviet republic.”
