The forces responsible for Russia's strategic nuclear arsenal will conduct major exercises this month involving more than 4,000 soldiers, the Defence Ministry said Wednesday, in the latest sign of rising tension with NATO over the Ukraine crisis.The agency quoted Dmitry Andreyev, a major in the strategic rocket forces, as saying troops would practice countering irregular units and high-precision weapons, and "conducting combat missions in conditions of active radio-electronic jamming and intensive enemy actions in areas of troop deployment".He said enemy forces would be represented in the exercises by spetsnaz (special forces) units.
