Ukraine holds new drills after top general warns of Russian attack in 2022


Ukraine conducted fresh military exercises outside the capital, Kiev, on Monday as thousands of Russian troops remain massed along the border between the two countries — and the head of Ukraine’s defense intelligence agency warned an invasion could come early next year.

​The drills involved airborne troops and armored personnel carriers and ​simulated an attack on an enemy target, Ukraine’s defense ministry said Monday. The ministry’s statement was accompanied by footage showing the landing of troops supported by helicopters and other aircraft.

Over the weekend, Ukrainian Brig. Gen. Kyrylo Budanov told Military Times that more than 92,000 Russian troops have gathered in the area of the border and are prepping to attack by the end of January or the beginning of February.
