Vostok 2018 Drills Begins In Russia

Russia’s largest ever military drill the Vostok 2018 exercise, which involves 300 thousand troops, got underway in the Eastern Military District on Tuesday, the press service of the Russian Defence Ministry told reporters.

“The Vostok 2018 troop exercises have begun in Russia’s Far East,” the ministry said. Taking part in the drills are about 300,000 Russian troops, over thousand aircraft, helicopters and unmanned aerial vehicles, up to 36 thousand tanks, armoured personnel carriers and other vehicles, up to 80 ships and supply vessels, the Defence Ministry added. Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu supervises the drills. According to Chief of Russia’s General Staff Valery Gerasimov, its main purpose is to check the level of training that can be assessed only in an exercise of proper scale.

The Vostok 2018 exercise will last until September 17.

Exercises similar in scale have not been held since 1981 when the Zapad-81 drills that involved about 100,000 troops were held in the Soviet Union's Belarusian, Kiev and Baltic Military Districts and in the Baltic Sea.
