The 15,000 Ukrainian troops have been on the border for a while, at least for a month or so in response to Russia massing 40,000 soldiers there too. It is a purely defensive move and easily justifiable unlike Russia's excuse because on multiple occasions they have failed to explain to the OSCE what their troops are doing.
During the drills, it was demonstrated how the missile corps, artillery, aviation and anti-aircraft defenses can be used – for instance, to destroy troops on the ground or to counter massive missile, aviation or nuclear strikes by an enemy.
Plus, it was shown how to inflict a launch-through-attack strike with nuclear missiles.
