Cossack Steppe


Poland, Britain, Ukraine hold joint military maneuver
Poland, Britain and Ukraine started Monday a two-week joint military maneuver in the western Polish province of Lubuskie, the Polish news agency reported on Thursday.

The military exercises, dubbed "Cossack Steppe," involve more than 500 troops from the three countries, the report said.

It said the aim of the maneuvers was to boost exchanges and cooperation among the armed forces of the three countries and improve their ability to carry out missions of maintaining peace and stability.

The joint maneuver has been held alternately between the three countries every year since 1996. Britain hosted similar maneuvers last year.

The current maneuver is schedule to end on Sept. 6.
