Russian President Vladimir Putin will visit next Tuesday, September 6, the Vostok-2022 military exercises in the Russian Far East, in which more than 50,000 troops from Russia and allied countries, including China, participate.

“The president will visit the active phase of the exercises on September 6,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitri Peskov said.

The exercises, which will last until the 7th, are directed by the Chief of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, General Valeri Gerasimov, and take place in seven polygons of the Eastern military constituency and in the waters of the seas Okhotsk and Japan.

The exercises rehearse actions by coalition groups and various types of units to “ensure the military security of the Russian Federation and allied states in the area of ​​responsibility of the Eastern military constituency,” according to the Russian Defense Ministry.

This year’s Vostok exercises in the Russian Far East have only a sixth of the military that took part in them four years ago.

And it is that in Vostok-2018 more than 300,000 soldiers were mobilized, which made these exercises the largest display of force by Russia since the times of the Cold War.

Vostok-2018, where Russian and Chinese troops exercised together for the first time in their history, also featured a visit by Russian President Vladimir Putin to the exercise zone.

However, military contingents from only two countries – China and Mongolia – participated in the Vostok-2018, compared to the thirteen that attended the current edition.
