(MENAFN) The Russian Defense Ministry has announced that it has started military exercises involving the Yars intercontinental ballistic missile. These drills are taking place in three Siberian regions, including Omsk and Novosibirsk, and involve over 3,000 servicemen and 300 units of military equipment. A special commission of the Strategic Rocket Forces is examining the coordination of military actions while performing the appointed tasks.
The military exercises are being held in accordance with the ministry's training plan for 2023, and are aimed at training maneuvering. The goal is to enhance the combat readiness of the troops and ensure that they are prepared to respond to any potential threats. The exercises will also focus on the use of drones of different modifications and carrying out a set of measures to disguise and counteract modern means of aerial reconnaissance in cooperation with formations and units of the Central Military District and the Aerospace Forces.
The ministry has stated that after the exercises, it will decide on the general level of combat training of the units, and also assess the capabilities of modern weapons and special equipment. The drills are a part of Russia's ongoing efforts to maintain its military readiness and ensure the security of the country. These exercises are significant in their use of intercontinental ballistic missiles, which are capable of striking targets located thousands of miles away.
The use of such advanced weaponry underscores the ongoing tensions between Russia and other global powers, and highlights the importance of maintaining military readiness in today's geopolitical climate. As Russia continues to develop and modernize its military capabilities, it will be important for other nations to monitor these developments and take appropriate measures to ensure regional and global stability.
