Putin's warning to the West: Russia releases video of huge military drills in Crimea with 10,000 troops, 200 fighter jets and 40 warships amid soaring tensions with Ukraine

Russia staged huge military drills involving 10,000 troops, 40 warships, over 200 warplanes, and about 1,200 vehicles in Crimea today after Vladimir Putin warned the West not to 'dare cross any red lines' amid soaring tensions with Ukraine.

Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu personally travelled to the peninsula on Thursday to oversee the colossal war games involving Russia's southern military district and paratroopers close to Ukraine.

Shoigu flew by helicopter over the Opuk firing range, where troops and military equipment are deployed, and checked the readiness of the naval and ground forces.
