Russia’s largest military drills in over three decades, also attended by the Chinese military forces, kicked off at the Tsugol training range in Russia’s Trans-Baikal region on Tuesday.

Codenamed “Vostok-2018”, the drills are said to be the largest military exercises since the “Zapad-1981”, which was held in 1981 by the Soviet Union and involved about 100,000 to 150,000 troops.
