The US is concerned over the sudden examination of the Russian combat capability and expects the Kremlin to fulfill its obligations on arms control, says the Pentagon spokesman Michel Baldantsa according to "Interfax".
She also reported that the Pentagon are aware that Russia has used military exercises to conceal the deployment of weapons to Ukraine.
According to her sudden combat readiness check often occurs before Russia launches large-scale military exercises.
“We saw messages about the Russian military conducting the ‘sudden’ drills. We hope that Russia will fulfill all respective commitments within acting agreements on armament control’,” said Baldantsa.
The Russian Armed Forces are in full alert across the country for a sudden combat readiness check.
