The US-led multi-national military exercise known as Saber Strike 2018, which a Kremlin spokesman said "Moscow always closely tracks," finished up this week.

"This exercise will facilitate unmatched cooperation between Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and 17 additional participating allied and partner militaries."Saber Strike 2018 was held between June 3 and June 15 in multiple Eastern European and Baltic countries, and the key "training events of the exercise included an air assault operation in Lithuania, a convoy of the US 2nd Cavalry Regiment from Germany to Latvia, and multiple bridge and river crossings," according to NATO.
