Russian T90A tanks conduct drills near Ukraine border

International Business Times is reporting that the Russian military conducted drills earlier this week with dozens of modern T-90A tanks in Russia’s Krasnodar region, located south of the border it shares with Ukraine.. The training exercise was the latest instance of Russian military activity that has caused tension with government leaders in Ukraine and the West.  The T-90A is sometimes referred to as the  T-90 “Vladimir” and differs from the original production T-90 in that it has a welded turret. Russian tank crews drove through mud and fired shells for target practice according to Ukraine Today.
