Just this week, Russia was accused of failing to resolve the conflict in Ukraine. Now the Russian military has announced that it will check its combat readiness.

After crisis talks between Russia and Western countries, the Russian military has held new maneuvers. The Defense Ministry announced on Friday in the capital Moscow that there had been an unannounced review of combat readiness in the East Military District.

It released a video that showed convoys of military vehicles and how tanks were loaded onto railroad cars. Soldiers were taken to remote training areas. A focus was also on the infrastructure “to ensure the transport of troops within a certain time,” it said.

Just this week, the United States accused Russia of not having shown any efforts to ease the tension in the Ukraine conflict. Russia continues to have around 100,000 soldiers deployed on the border with Ukraine, US Ambassador to NATO Julianne Smith told US broadcaster CNN.

On Wednesday, more than 10,000 soldiers began maneuvers at more than 20 training areas in southern Russia. On the same day, representatives of the 30 NATO countries and Russia held talks for the first time in two and a half years – about the Ukraine conflict and security guarantees that Moscow is demanding from the transatlantic military alliance.

There was also a meeting of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) on Thursday. A high-level meeting of representatives of Russia and the United States was held in Geneva on Monday.
