4:00 am
television show. >> she could walk into this arena right now, shoot somebody with 20,000 people watching, and she wouldn't be prosecuted. less than 60 days from the election. hillary clinton, donald trump, ramping up a war of words attacking each other and now their opponents' supporters. the u.s. and russia partner on a cease-fire deal in syria. the goal, give these countries a clear path to target isis and other terror groups there. fanatically reckless. unacceptable. a grave threat. that's what some world leaders are calling north korea's claim it successfully test add nuclear warhead. well, good morning to you on a saturday. we're always grateful for your company. i'm christi paul. >> i'm victor blackwell. good to be with you and we start this morning with potentially ground-breaking deal on u.s. and russian cooperation in syria. both sides now working together to try to end the conflict
4:01 am
there, which could, if successful, help battle isis in the country. now, the agreement comes after months of talks, and at a time when u.s./russian relations are a bit contentious. >> today the united states and russia are announcing a plan, which we hope will reduce violence, ease suffering, and resume movement towards a negotiated peace and a political transition in syria. working together russia and the united states and our teams have devised what we think is a more prescriptive and far-reaching approach than we have been able to put together to date. >> this, of course, is donald trump, who is trying to dial back praise of russian president vladimir putin after being slammed for calling him a "stronger leader a e "than
4:02 am
president obama. >> she talks about me, oh, donald trump likes putin. and putin likes trump. honestly, i don't know the gentleman. but you know what? he's been nice to me. if he's nice to me -- if we got along with russia that wouldn't be so bad. >> now, earlier this week tim kaine attacked trump for what he calls his bizarre fascination with strong men like putin, north korea's kim jong-un and syrian president bashar al assad. in the meantime, donald trump is back at his focus of slamming hillary clinton for using a personal e-mail server while she was secretary of state. clinton, meanwhile, hammering trump for praising russian president putin. cnn senior white house correspondent jim acosta kind of walks us through what's happened. >> that it was -- i thought it was very important, very revealing in many ways. >> reporter: declaring victory after his national security forum with hillary clinton, donald trump walked into an
4:03 am
education event in cleveland and sounded like he was in a school yard brawl, hammering the former secretary of state's e-mail scandal. >> every time she talks about the subject, it's different. she's got get her act together. this is yet more evidence that clinton is unfit to be your commander in chief. >> hello! >> reporter: but clinton is swinging right back, slamming trump's praise of russia's vladimir putin. >> if he says great things about me i'm going to say great things about hill. the man has very strong control over a country. >> reporter: she blasted trump's remarks putin is more effective than president obama as unpatriotic. >> it is scary. it is dangerous. it actually suggests he will let putin do what putin wants, and even make excuses for him. >> reporter: the back and forth went all day long. clinton aimed at trump's comments on how the obama administration has treated the u.s. military. >> i think under the leadership
4:04 am
of barack obama and hillary clinton, the generals have been reduced to rubble. >> we saw more evidence that he is temperamentally unfit and totally unqualified to be commander in chief. he trash talked american generals, saying they've been "reduced to rubble." >> reporter: on this comment, trump made about the intelligence briefings he receives as a candidate -- n. almost every instance, and i could tell i have pretty good with the body language, i could tell, they were not happy. our leaders did not follow what they were recommending. >> reporter: democrats say it's more proof trump isn't fit to receive those briefings in the first place. >> i think what he said was totally inappropriate. and undisciplined. i would never comment on any aspect of an intelligence briefing that i received. >> reporter: and hitting clinton's decision to support the invasion of iraq in 2003, trump once again tried to make the case he opposed that war
4:05 am
from the start. even noting media reports rated that claim false. >> i opposed going in, and i did oppose it. despite the media saying, no, yes, no. but i was opposed to the war from the beginning. long after my interview with howard stern. >> reporter: trump did indeed tell howard stern he was in favor of the war. >> are you for invading iraq? >> yeah, i guess so. >> reporter: traump ump is poin to yore interview he gave to fox when he said i think the iraqi situation is a problem and the economy is a much bigger problem as far as the president is concerned. >> i didn't have access to all of the intelligence information that she did, and everybody else did. >> reporter: but in 2006, trump gave clinton a pass on that intelligence telling the "new york times" don't forget that decision was based on lies given to her. she's very smart and has a major chance to be our next president. clinton is instead focusing on
4:06 am
trump's plans for iraq. >> now namely, his position for dealing with isis. >> he says his plan is still a secret, but the truth is, he simply doesn't have one. >> reporter: there is one area of defense trump can work on as a candidate that is his campaign war chest. an official tells cnn trump raised $90 million in august. a lot less than hillary clinton raised last month but enough to fire back at the damaging ads she's running all over the country. jim acosta, cnn, philadelphia. all right. bring in maria cardona, cnn political commentator and a republican political commentator and donald trump supporter. good morning to you both. >> good morning. >> good morning. >> boris epstein, senior adviser to the campaign coming up later. we'll get the official response from the trump campaign on this deal announced overnight between the u.s. and russia on what to do in syria, but come to you and get from your perspective the skepticism has been in the past that these cease-fire deals don't last, because all parties aren't involved.
4:07 am
do you think this time, this is different? >> you know what? victor, i don't pretend to be a foreign policy expert but what i will tell you from a political perspective, the attacks that mr. trump has been receiving for his what i call it, political diplomacy towards russia and in particular the russian president is proof positive that when you have diplomatic relations that are positive, it is a good thing for our country. it's it a good thing for the world. and so his relationship with putin, his relationship with the mexican president are positive things, and when you have a good relationship like this, you can have deals, and i believe donald trump is going to be the one that can have even better deals for our country. >> what relationship? because donald trump has been on both sides of the fence on whether he has a relationship with putin, whether he mitt het or has not met him and says he has met him on different dates and times. when you say relationship with putin what specifically are you talking about? >> when i say relationship, i
4:08 am
mean through the media and through the words and messaging he uses as it relates to that country. what does the signal that you send to the american people? what is the signal you send to the world as you talk about world leaders? so in so much that his relationship is based upon his media interactions with him and public statements, that is what i'm referring to. >> so maria, we come to you. this deal that was hammered out overnight, why is it a bad thing that donald trump has positive things to say about mr. putin, especially when the secretary of state and their foreign secretary are working together to try to work out this compade syria? >> having serious diplomacy and work out a deal to bring peace to the middle east is very different from the very strange, bizarre obsession man crush that donald trump has with vladimir putin, and frankly vice versa. that vladimir putin apparently has to donald trump. and it really does not indicate at all and, in fact, the
4:09 am
opposite, of confidence that the american people should have in somebody like donald trump, because he not only praises a strong man dictator who oppresses his people, who kills a journalist who opposed him, who suppresses the media, and who essentially is completely the opposite of what we value in america, but he has also praised bashar al assad, who has praised saddam hussein. he has praised kim jong-un. this to me is an indication of somebody who has no clue what a diplomatic relationship should be that actually gets us to real deals, and underscores that he is temperamentally unfit, wholly unqualified and completely unprepared to be commander of the country. >> i want to turn to north korea before we go to break and come back to you. i want you to listen to what donald trump said about potentially allowing south korea
4:10 am
to defend itself maybe with nuclear weapons and also speaking about japan. let's watch. >> so north korea has nukes. japan has a problem with that. i mean, they have a big problem with that. maybe they would, in fact, be better off if they defend themselves from north korea? >> with nukes? >> including with nukes, yes. including with nukes. >> and the south korea, with nukes? >> south korea is right next door. just so you understand. >> but that's -- >> south korea -- excuse me, excuse me. >> on the korean peninsula. >> you already have it -- >> from your perspective is that a realistic option considering what we saw this week with this test of nuclear weapons here and there effort to minimalize the weapons to allow south korea to obtain nuclear weapons? is that still on the table? >> first of all, you know, mr. trump is not the president of the united states yet, and so to the things he's saying right now or proposals, ideas, things that you put on the table to c. that's every candidate who runs. these are just proposals since they don't -- >> exactly. >> but that's what you run on,
4:11 am
proposals. so to try to reduce the impact of it -- i don't see that argument holds up. >> you run on your proposals and then when you get in office you govern and make the decisions based upon all of the symbol jns and the advice and consent from your generals. what i think you see mr. trump doing is being open and being honest with the american people about putting, leaving nothing off the table to defend our country and to make america great again. he's going to do it and be a strong leader and he knows how to negotiate and he knows how to listen when necessary to make things happen on a positive nature. and the thing is, we've had secretary of state clinton who is, by all means, a foreign policy expert and you can't name one positive thing that she did in her tenure at secretary of state and when you look at the handling of benghazi, it's deplorable how she handled that -- >> just my point i didn't get an answer about nuclear weapons on the table. >> of course you didn't. >> a break.

4:15 am
all right. back with me, hillary clinton supporter maria cardona and donald trump supporter paris. turn to something hillary clinton said at a fund-raiser last night about donald trump supporters. watch and then we'll talk to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of trump supporters into what i call the basket of deplorables. right? the racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, islamophobic. you name it, and unfortunately there are people like that. and he has lifted them up. >> all right. let me come to you, maria. first, just being grossly generalistic seems like it could be troublesome for a candidate, and some compared this to mitt
4:16 am
romney's 47% comment four years ago. do you think this was appropriate or even accurate, what hillary clinton said last night at that fund-raiser? >> well, i think certainly in is accurate what she said about donald trump mainstreaming a hate movement and having in -- and having given way too much influence into his own campaign. people who represent what we've been calling the alt-right movement. she gave a whole speech on this. you know, so the particulars of what she said are not incorrect. there are white supremacists who support trump. there are absolutely xenophobic people who support donald trump, and he has mainstreamed that into his own campaign. bringing on advisers that represent those movements, and, you know, steve bannon. you have ann coulter. you have joe arpaio. you have steve king, who are definitely people who can be connected with those kinds of
4:17 am
movements, with those kinds of sentiments. >> maria, let me introduce this, because whatever hillary clinton just said last night about people who hate blacks or jews or muslims what we learned about the poll that came out, what unifies them, this dislike of hillary clinton. half of his supporters dislike those groups it shows nearly two-thirds of the people voting for donald trump aren't voting because of some demographic. they're voting because they don't like her? >> that doesn't surprise me. hillary clinton has been a mobilizing factor for far right extremists in the republican party ever since she became first lady of the united states. there was a whole industry, a cottage industry, that was created simply to bring her down. she has been a target of that kind of movement for the last 40 years. so that is not in any way, shape or form surprising to me. but, again what she said was actually -- was very correct,
4:18 am
and i think what she's trying to underscore is -- >> wow. that's terrible. >> -- is that we need to understand that this mainstreaming and normalization of hatred and vitriol is not connected to what real american values stand for. >> let me now go to paris. your response to what the former secretary said? >> victor, it was inappropriate, prepared remarks. this was on purpose and something that i think she owes the 14 million americans who voted for mr. trump an apology by saying that people like myself could be considered racist, sexist, et cetera. this is not what we need in this campaign right now. we need to be focused on solutions in policy, not calling people names, and potentially -- look, if she becomes the president of the united states out of some crazy fluke, she is going to have to learn how to tell these people, you know what? i consider half of you racist, sexist. when you're president you're the president of all people. and you have got to have the
4:19 am
right temperament and judgment, and the right dishcharacter. you may disagree with me but i'm not going to call you names. >> you should tell your own candidate that, paris. >> we have just a couple of seconds. >> who started by denigrating a whole slew of people. >> i want to play something donald trump said yesterday. let's play that. >> she could walk into this arena right now and shoot somebody with 20,000 people watching, right smack in the middle of the heart, and she wouldn't be prosecuted. >> why does donald trump return to this analogy of shooting people in public? >> i believe what mr. trump was saying is, that the rules don't seem to apply to secretary clinton. colin kaepernick said when he was asked in the locker room, he said, if any other american did what she did with their e-mails they'd be in jail right now and i think that's the sentiment that they can do whatever they
4:20 am
want and there's a separate set of laws that apply to secretary clinton and she should not be above the law. he made the same analogy, my supporters support me so strongly that -- >> he could shoot somebody and not lose votes. it seems worrisome that we continue to go back to this gun violence. >> we should elevate the conversati conversation. >> it is worrisome. >> and maria should renounce what hillary clinton said about -- >> what this underscores is the sort of desperation coming out of -- >> the clinton campaign. absolutely desperation. >> hold on. >> the campaign -- coming out of the trump campaign because they cannot see past the fact that the fbi decided not to move forward with action on hillary clinton's e-mails, and like comey said, it wasn't even a contest. it was not a -- >> we have to wrap it up. we'll talk more about this this morning. >> 8% black vote.

4:25 am
24 minutes past hour, and so many people talking about north korea's bombshell claim that is successfully detonated a nuclear device. this is north korea's fifth nuclear bomb test and it's most power follow we should point out. saying kim jong-un is on a very rapid program for making a deliverable nuclear weapon that can reach the united states. here's cnn's brian todd. >> reporter: the equivalent of 10,000 tons of tnt detonated deep underground. power of kim jong-un's latest bomb test according to officials. >> the north korean detonation is similar in size to the bomb detonated on hiroshima. >> reporter: now in washington,
4:26 am
seoul and tokyo, officials are calling this a new level of threat from kim. one u.s. official telling cnn the north korean the capability is, "very troubling." >> this is an inherently dangerous situation. the white house is so concerned that they're talking about extended deterrence, which means if they launch against us or our allies, we will launch against them. >> reporter: the north koreans claim they were testing a nuclear warthat he had can be mounted on ballistic missiles or rockets. a key question now, who's under the most imminent threat. >> north collar tkorea has the to put nuclear weapons on shorter range missiles that could hit japan. >> reporter: they say they haven't yet tested the capability of those missiles to re-enter the atmosphere from space. so it's not clear if they'd work. the fear of one analyst, that kim's regime will do a live test
4:27 am
of a nuclear weapon on one of its tests and won't know it's a test and could trigger a war. >> use it as a way to fire a warning shot, if they felt they were going to be invaded. >> reporter: experts say north korea likely has between 13 and 20 nuclear bombs and they're on their way to having 50 or more by 2020. with this threat another frightening assessment of the man who has those weapons at his disposal. it comes from his main rival in the south. >> translator: i think the mental condition of kim jong-un is out of control. >> reporter: makes kim jong-un really threatening is that he may have a weak grip on power. recently there have been a number of high-level defections and a restarting of the executions of senior officials. that means that there's turmoil in pyongyang. >> reporter: the white house is promising serious consequences for kim jong-un because of this test, but president obama's options are limited. sanctions have had virtually no
4:28 am
effect on kim's empty haver. a first military strike is unlikely. a cyber attack, possibly, but north korea is not very well connected to the internet and the many of its cyber warriors are actually in china. brian todd, cnn, washington. republican vice president candidate mike pence released his tax returns, which, of course, renews the question, will donald trump follow suit? also, gary johnson, it was an embarrassing mistake when asked a question about the conflict in syria. how much is it going to affect his campaign for president? two of his most prominent supporters have something to say about that. they're weighing in with us, next. if you have moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis,

4:33 am
consequence. watch. >> she could walk into this arena right now, and shoot somebody with 20,000 people watching right smack in the middle of the heart, and she wouldn't be prosecuted. >> and then hillary clinton goes after the people who are supporting donald trump -- >> to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of trump's supporters into what i call the basket of deplorables. right? >> all right. we'll talk about those comments in just a moment, but let's talk about the clinton campaign hitting donald trump for not releasing his tax returns. now half the gop has released theirs. only two people. so that means vice president nominee mike pence released his tax returns going back ten years. and they show how pence and his wife made a little more than $100,000 in 2015.
4:34 am
$113,000, about, paying an effective tax rate of 8%. now, tax attorneys say that's normal rate for that income bracket. the question now that many asked for months, will donald trump release his returns before the election? from washington we've got cnn correspondent scott mclean. first, i don't know if there are big headlines coming out of pence' tax returns but that question still lingers? >> absolutely. well, mike pence's taxes, victor, seem pretty ordinary, which is what people seemed to expect, as you pointed out. mike pence and his wife karen last year earned just over $113,000, which is actually the lowest amount brought in in the past decade. also a fairly modest income when you compare to say, people like donald trump or hillary clinton. now, the pence's paid an effective tax rate about 8%, thanks to a handful of deductions for things like his daughter's education, and for charitable giving. the pence's gave nearly $9,000 to charity last year.
4:35 am
but as you point out, mike pence's decision to release his tax returns is only drawing more attention to the fact that donald trump has yet to release his, because they're under internal revenue service audit. now, the clinton campaign tried to make this a liability for donald trump, but as recently as tuesday he says, it's not big deal. >> -- nobody cares about it except some of the folks in the media. nobody cares about it. just so you understand, i'm under audit, routine audit. when the audit's completed i'll release my returns. but when the audit is completed i'll release my returns. it doesn't matter. >> reporter: donald trump may think it's no big deal but a poll taken shows more than half of americans think he's not releasing his tax returns because he has something to hide. the clinton campaign put out a statement yesterday saying that trump is hiding behind fake excuses, but the trump campaign, again, stressing yesterday that donald trump does plan on
4:36 am
releasing his taxes as soon as that irs addwed audit is comple. whether or not that will be before the election is the big question here, victor. >> scott mclean watching from washington. thank you so much, scott. here's something you probably wouldn't expect. senator elizabeth warren seemingly given donald trump credit for being on to something here. she sat down with jake tapper and they spoke about trurch amp the november election and went on to make a clear where she splits with trump on issues. watch this. >> the way i see this is that donald trump has tapped into something that's real. there's a lot of anger. >> something that you talk about all the time. >> i was just going to say. >> yeah. >> it's real, because the game is rippinged against hard-working people, the game is rigged against a lot of people, young people, a lot of people who have done their dead-level best, worked hard played by the
4:37 am
rules and just see any chance of economic security way outside their reach. and he's tapped into how angry people feel about that, rightly angry. the problem is, donald trump's so-called solution just heads us in the wrong direction. >> catch of rest of that interview on "state of the union" at 9:00 a.m. eastern tomorrow. hasn't been a particularly strong week for libertarian presidential candidate gary johnson, but he owned up to a flub about a question regarding syria. the question is, has it affected his support? we're going to talk to some people who are planning, or were planning to vote for him. we'll see what they think now. >> hey, i take complete responsibility. i'm running for president of the united states. look, i should have known what he was talking about. i tried hard to quit smoking. but when we brought our daughter home, that was it. now i have nicoderm cq. the nicoderm cq patch with unique extended release

not the other way around. candidate seeing a little fallout, perhaps, from what could effect his presidential run and it comes to this -- libertarian nominee gary johnson making, a bit embarrassing gaffe on national television regarding the war in syria. later he owned up to it saying, this was my mistake and he did so right here on cnn. listen. >> what would you do if you were elected about aleppo? >> about aleppo? and what is aleppo? >> you're kidding? >> no. >> aleppo is in syria. it's the -- it's the epicenter of the refugee crisis.
4:42 am
>> okay. got it. got it. >> i'm very aware of the policy and going on the show yesterday thinking aleppo was an acronym and hey i take complete responsibility. i'm running for the president of the united states. look, i should have known what he was talking about. >> all righty. let's talk about the potential of what this could mean. daryl day, libertarian talk show host with us and ron hart, a libertarian commentator. thank you so much for waking up early. ron, i understand that you say it was a gotcha question. syria has been in the news so much, how was it a gotcha question? >> i just felt like it was a -- ask the average person, aleppo, what it is. i thought it was the fifth marx brother. i write a daily newspaper. a bit of a gotcha question, an

air gant, condescending on the media to do it. the next guy on was an obama ambassador to iraq who didn't know it either and the "new york times" had to check it twice, google it. a messy issue. >> some push back saying, but this guy's running for president. >> so is obama. obama said he's been in 57 states. that's not a disqualifier for him. >> all righty. daryl, get to you, and pull a quote here, too, from vox.com and read it here, if we can put it up here. it says, can we be real? a lot of people criticizing johnson, and getting to your point, ron, criticizing johnson didn't understand what aleppo is either. former u.s. ambassador chris hill set the capital of isis. "new york times" called it a strong held for isis, corrected itself saying aleppo was the capital of syria all of which is wrong. damascus is the capital, of course. is it indicative at all, daryl, of the complexity of what's
4:44 am
happening, and what people are paying attention to in this election? are people really paying attention to syria or is it coming down to the economy? >> well, i think the economy's probably going to be number one on everyone's mind. we also figured, i'm not really a libertarian, more in the deplorable party, we found out. >> i asked daryl, are you comfortable letting us know who you're voting for. you are a libertarian, as you just said? >> i'm actually a registered republican but i interview people every day like you do, and in the interview process, i side with ron on this. a little bit of a gotcha question, i think, because as an interviewer when you ask someone a question, and you know that they're not quite connecting with it, i believe that the interviewer should have said, in regards to syria -- >> right. just. >> just to keep the interview going. >> right. when talking about the condescending, you're talking about the, "are you kidding me?" >> and we libertarians aren't
4:45 am
interventionists. we like to know the names of the countries we're bombing. this is not a policy of doctrine, let's at least understand where we're going. you know? >> as a radio show host, though, are view otheers talking about ? is this going to change voters for gary johnson? >> i don't think so. there's not a lot you can do to lose that support. you're either in there or you're out. this election is unlike anyone we've had in a long time. the people in the camps are there to stay. you won't see in the very last days of the campaign any change or crossover. most people are pretty well set who they're going to vote for. >> we don't often see politicians owning it. >> right. >> the way that gary johnson did. >> refreshing to see that. you know, usually they know it and go forward with it, maybe even evade it if they have to.
4:46 am
yeah. i like the idea he stepped back, said he didn't understand syria. he just didn't understand aleppo. a cavalcade of mistakes about the media who didn't understand it as well. minor issue, as far as i'm concerned. we need to know the names of the country we invade. 15 years of interventionalism. $2 trillion and haven't done anything as a country, from the bay of pigs through iran, changing the shah in iran, egypt, afghanistan. we have not -- if we win one we'll be 1-0. >> let me ask you both, and daryl start with you. do you believe that, i mean, they're getting close. that the -- most solid poll i've seen on johnson has been at 13%. he needs to reach that 15% threshold to get to the debate. do you believe they can do it after this? and how confident are you in his
4:47 am
debate skills? >> it's hard to say, because i believe it could go either way. there may be some support he may lose, but some people may say, this was a gotcha question. this was a question that everybody knows about syria, but no one knows about aleppo until we had that horrific picture of the little boy put in the back of the ambulance. i think a lot of people then might have said, hey, aleppo. i'm aware of that. i don't think it's going to be up or down, and i certainly don't believe it's a disqualifier. i'm a member of the deplorable party, thereagain. i think the disqualifiers are found in the constitution. age and natural birth and everything else is up to the voters. >> we appreciate you both being here so much. thank you for taking the time. victor? >> thank you, christi. russia showing force in crim crimea. why their military is staging war games in this tense region. we'll examine that in a moment. when you hit 300,000 miles. or here, when you walked away without a scratch. maybe it was the day your baby came home.

well, at least four tornadoes tearing across illinois. and we have the pictures to show you what they left behind. look at this, this poor man is trying to get through a window as a whole wall is toppled over. >> other photos show the tornado touching down. look at this, you can see the debris there in the air as it levels homes there. allison chinchar is in the severe weather center. tornadoes really are not rare this time of the year, but four in one day there. >> yeah, again, it's not peak
4:52 am
season, but it's also not necessarily the -- where we see absolutely none. so here's a look at what we had yesterday. six hail reports, five tornadoes. four were in illinois. here's the setup we had from yesterday. here's a map of illinois. now where you see sham champaign, that's where we saw the tornado from yesterday. that's the typical setup. where you get the warm and cold air mixing will help to create this. what you look for on the radar is the hook shape. that tells us where the tornado is going to be. what you get oftentimes is the warm air rising to pick up the updrafts. but we also have cold air sinking down to the ground. that kind of gives it that spinning nature. at the bottom you'll get what we refer to as the debris cloud. you can even see that in some of
4:53 am
the ages that you were showing, but again as you mentioned, too, it's the time of year. we typically think of may and june as the peak when we get more tornadoes. but now we are into the phase when things should be going back down. it's not zero but also not the peak time of year to see those storms. really the reason why we had severe weather yesterday is because it's been so hot. we have been talking about the record hot temperatures the last couple of days and that had a huge impact. one thing to note, guys, at least we are not where we were the same time last year. so at least a slight improvement. although the year is not over yet. >> all right. allison chinchar, appreciate it. thank you. russia, while working on this peace deal for syria, is reminding the world of its military power in crimea, staging a series of war games near the border with ukraine. you remember russia annexed crimea two years ago in violation of international law. cnn's fred pleitgen watched the
4:54 am
games unfold. >> reporter: moscow putting on a huge show of force. war games from land, air and sea. in chi mia the territory russia annexed from ukraine a little over two years ago. the russians are sending a very clear message with the complex military drills. their forces are here in crimea ready to fight any time. the maneuvers are called 2016 that take place in crimea and in the southern military district right on the border with ukraine. the drills involve more than 12,000 soldiers, dozens of fighter jets flying mock-dogfight missions hitting land and sea targets and land forces in an amphibious assault. still the ministry spokesman insists it is not a provocation. this is not a provocation, he
4:55 am
says. this is a planned event. we announced these drills last november and the troops have been preparing for a long time. but they come at a time of heightened tensions with the u.s. and nato over the annexation of crimea and other issues. the russian air force intercentered a u.s. p8 naval aircraft in the area just as drills got underway. and only three weeks ago russia accused ukraine of smuggle iing things into the area. this will cause more unease in ukraine and more nato states. the russian military chief of staff says the initial assessment is that they went smoothly. we need to fully analyze, he says, but these drills were very beneficial to the southern military district and for the troops from other districts involved as well. with russia and the west at odds over syria and ukraine, moscow is continuing to advance and refine its armed forces for all
