U.S. Military Defends Rocket Drills Called ‘Extremely Dangerous’ by Russia

The U.S. military told Newsweek it rejects Russia's warning over recent rocket drills held in the neighboring NATO alliance nation Estonia. The rocket drills are the first of their time, and are taking place during a time of heightened tensions across the Baltics and neighboring Belarus.
