Scheduled Ukraine large-scale military exercises in the sea of Azov do not threaten Russia, but the Ukrainian military must understand that any attempt of use of weapons in the direction of the Russian territory will meet the immediate and adequate response, said RIA Novosti Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on defense and security Alexey Kondratyev.

Earlier, the press service of the national security Council and defense of Ukraine with reference to the Secretary of the Department Oleksandr Turchynov announced that the Ukrainian military are planning to hold large-scale exercises in the sea of Azov.

«The command of the armed forces of Ukraine should be aware that in case of attempts of the use of weapons in the direction of Russia, will be immediately given an adequate response,» — said Kondratiev.

He added that the state of the Ukrainian fleet does not allow Russia to consider it as a serious threat.
