in news •  7 months ago

The largest military exercises in Russian contemporary history are here - Vostok 2018. From 11 to 17 September 2018 in the territory of the Russian Federation, in the Far East of Russia, they will involve a multitude of servicemen, tanks, planes, helicopters and will inevitably be of concern to an obvious party in this question. During the exercises, the use of inter-service military groupings in the interests of ensuring Russia's military security will be deployed but what's significant in this case is the involvement of China, which has grown to become a valuable and now symbolic ally. They will bring in their own servicemen to various stages of the exercises, together with a contingent from Mongolia.

These are the largest maneuvers since the collapse of the Soviet Union where about 300,000 Russian servicemen of all kinds will participate. On land, on water and in the air, they will test the operative effectiveness and redeployment of military formations across vast distances .

''It will also involve more than 1,000 aircraft. Naturally, the Pacific and Northern Fleets are fully involved in the Airborne Forces. Imagine that at the same time, 36,000 units of military equipment are in operation: tanks, armored personnel carriers, infantry fighting vehicles, and all this, of course, is checked in conditions as close to combat as possible. '' - Sergey Shoygu commented on the first day of the exercises.

The Vostok 2018 exercises are here and they are here to stay. For a week, that is.
