Ukraine crisis: UK says Russia has 'not learnt lesson' as UK warns against conflict.

RUSSIA is set to encircle Europe with massive war games alongside China and Iran as fears grow over a possible invasion of Ukraine.

Putin plans to hold naval drills in the Atlantic, Arctic, Mediterranean and the Pacific this month, Moscow's Ministry of Defence announced on Thursday.

A massive manoeuvre has already started in the Gulf of Oman, south of Iran, which will continue until next Saturday, according to Bild.

Over the coming weeks, war games with Putin ally Belarus will include more than 140 warships and support vessels - as well as 60 aircraft, 1,000 piece of military equipment - and around 10,000 servicemen, the defence ministry said.
