From wire reports, VILNIUS

Russia has started military exercises with its Baltic Fleet, Airborne Troops and Air Force in the Kaliningrad Region, Russia's exclave on the Baltic Sea coast, reports Itar-Tass news agency.

"The drills are taking place simultaneously with the international drills Saber Strike 2014 and BALTOPS 2014 that kicked off in Europe," the Russian Defense Ministry told Itar-Tass.

NATO drills Saber Strike 2014 take place on the territory of three Baltic States from June 9-20, and BALTOPS 2014 in the Baltic Sea from June 6 - 21.

"The number the Russian Defense Ministry's troops and equipment involved is equitable with the number of personnel, armaments and military hardware employed in border exercises being conducted by NATO countries," it said.
