12 NATO member states and their partner nations including Ukraine have begun two weeks of military exercises as tensions between West and Russia continue over the Crimea peninsula.

The maneuvers dubbed as Saber Guardian began on Friday morning in eastern Bulgaria. Seven hundred troops from countries including the US, Bulgaria, Georgia, Romania and Turkey are taking part in the exercises. The military alliance says the drills were planned before the renewed tensions between Russia and the West. American, Romanian and Bulgarian naval forces have also recently held joint drills in the Black Sea. Meanwhile, the U-S ambassador to Poland has reportedly said Washington is preparing to hold joint military exercises with the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia, Romania and Bulgaria.
