"Ukraine has begun surface-to-air missile tests over the Black Sea, west of the disputed Crimea peninsula. Russia, which annexed Crimea in 2014, had called the planned tests a provocation and threatened to shoot the missiles down. But on Thursday Russia's air transport agency said Ukraine had moved the border of the test area further away, apparently reducing Russian concerns. A Ukrainian official said the tests were in line with international law." (12/01/16)
