The ‘Zapad-2021’ military exercises are underway from September 10 to 16, at nine training grounds across both countries. The drills will see over 800 pieces of military equipment put through their paces, such as the Uran-9 and Nerekhta combat robots.
Around 200,000 individuals, including some 2,000 service members from member states of the Collective Security Treaty Organisation, Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, and other friendly nations, will participate in the exercises.
