Ukraine to hold military exercises with US, UK


KIEV, Ukraine (AP) - Ukraine's security chief says that the country will hold joint military exercises with the United States and Britain.

Andriy Parubiy, the secretary of the National Security and Defense Council secretary, said Wednesday that Ukraine will hold maneuvers with the countries that signed the 1994 Budapest Memorandum. He didn't give any specifics.

The document was signed by the U.S., Britain and Russia to guarantee Ukraine's territorial integrity after it had surrendered its share of Soviet nuclear arsenals to Russia.

Ukraine has accused Russia of breaching the agreement by taking over the Crimean peninsula.
