The Air Forces of Ukraine and Russia held joint trining on April 21.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, Defense Minister of Ukraine Yuri Yekhanurov claimed this to journalists in the Cabinet of Ministers on Wednesday.

“We carry out joint trainings with Russians, as with neighbors. The next training will be with NATO”, Yuri Yekhanurov said.

According to him, yesterday several Ukrainian planes “violated” the Russian air space within frames of the training, and the same number of Russian planes was over the Ukrainian territory. “Yesterday our pilots had much work to do”, the Minister noted.
