Russia Plans Military Exercises: Russia is preparing to conduct maneuvers to further increase its military capability. Despite the ongoing war with Ukraine, the country will conduct military exercises on a large scale in the eastern parts. The Ministry of Defense of Russia said that the exercise named Vostok (East)-2022 (Vostok East Exercises) will be held from 30 August to 5 September and soldiers will be involved in the exercise to be held in 13 firing ranges of Eastern Military District.
The Russian Defense Ministry said that air soldiers, long-range bombers and military cargo aircraft will also participate in this exercise. According to the statement, foreign soldiers will also participate in this exercise.
Russian army will exercise
In a statement issued by the Russian Defense Ministry regarding the plan of the military exercise, the names of the countries whose soldiers will take part in it have not been disclosed. The Defense Ministry said the number of troops operating in Ukraine was sufficient to carry out the tasks and emphasized that the Russian Army has not canceled any planned exercises.
Which countries can be involved?
It is worth noting that the soldiers of Russia and China took part in the military exercises held last year, which indicates the growing military ties between Moscow and Beijing. Troops from Armenia, India, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Mongolia took part in major exercises in Russia and Belarus last year. Let us tell you that the war between Russia and Ukraine has been going on for more than 5 months. US CIA Director William Burns said last week that the US has estimated that 15,000 Russian soldiers have been killed in Ukraine since February.
