Russia Launches Largest Military Exercise in Post-Soviet Period
Local Editor

Russia started on Saturday large-scale exercise in the Eastern Military District aimed at improving combat readiness of the Russian armed forces.Russia drills

The Defense Ministry announced the move which is the largest surprise check of combat readiness of the Russian military in the post-Soviet period.

The exercise, which involves over 80,000 servicemen, some 1,000 armored vehicles, 130 aircraft and 70 warships from the Pacific Fleet, will continue until July 20, Russian news agency, RIA Novosti reported.

“The main goal of the drills is to check the readiness of units to carry out their missions, and to assess the quality of their training and technical preparedness,” the ministry said in a statement.

The snap drills were ordered by President Vladimir Putin on Friday when he told Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu to inform foreign countries about the upcoming exercises, taking into account their scale and common international practice.

It is the third surprise check of combat readiness since the beginning of the year and follows a major shake-up at the top of a military establishment tarnished by persistent evidence of rampant corruption.

Putin said in May that surprise military drills is a perfect way to keep the armed forces in good shape and vowed to continue similar practices in the future.

The Eastern Military District is one of the four operational strategic commands of the Russian Armed Forces. The district was formed in 2010. It absorbed the territories of the former Far East Military District and part of the former Siberian Military District with headquarters at Khabarovsk.

Chinese military exercises, Russian exercises, US-Japan exercises, Korea exercises, US troops in Suez
canal, Syria, Turkey, Egypt uprisings and military \"training\", it\\’s all but a matter of time or
accident until we finally have our WWWIII, all to defend the freedom of the 4 billion dead people. Are we
insane or what?
