Ukraine conflict: Russia steps up military drills

Russia has conducted a series of what it calls "military preparedness drills" near the country's border with Ukraine.

Arseniy Yatsenyuk insisted that Ukraine would find a "political solution" to the tension in the country's autonomous Crimea region, a centre of pro-Russian sentiment.
