As reported, on Nov. 25, the Defense Ministry of the Russian Federation presented Ukraine's Defense Attaché in Moscow a diplomatic note in connection with Ukraine's plans to hold missile-firing exercise near occupied Crimea.

Russia's Federal Air Transport Agency said Nov. 29 that Ukraine had allegedly established new danger zones for flights over the neutral waters of the Black Sea and partly over the Black Sea territorial waters to the southwest and southeast of the occupied Crimean Peninsula.

Ukraine considers two probable outcomes of S-300 system deployment in Crimea by the Russian Federation immediately before the scheduled missile-firing exercise: either Russia plans to defeat the Ukrainian missile or it plots to shoot down a passenger jet to subsequently put blame on the Ukrainian side citing the missile-firing test.
