The manoeuvres are also intended to demonstrate that Moscow has sufficient military might for massive drills even as its troops are engaged in fighting in Ukraine.

The Russian defence ministry said the Vostok 2022 (East 2022) exercise would be held until 7 September at seven firing ranges in Russia’s far east and the Sea of Japan and involve more than 50,000 troops and 5,000 weapons units, including 140 aircraft and 60 warships.
