Russia to hold military exercises on day of presidential elections in Ukraine – FM Deschytsia

Ukraine's Acting Foreign Minister Andriy Deschytsia has said that Russia has scheduled the holding of military exercises for May 25, the day of presidential elections in Ukraine.

"The Russian side, unfortunately, as you can see, is making decisions that do not contribute to the stabilization of the situation in the eastern regions of Ukraine. In particular, today it was announced that military exercises would be held on election day in Ukraine on May 25," he told reporters on Thursday.

Deschytsia said that Russian military exercises near Ukraine's border "will not help stabilize the situation in the eastern regions."
