Russia's Putin attends biggest post-Soviet war games in Siberia

The Associated Press reports that Putin addressed reporters near the Tsugol firing range, 80 miles north of China's border and where the war games took place, saying that Russian Federation needs a stronger military to properly counter foreign threats.

"Our duty toward Russian Federation, our motherland, is to be ready to stand up for its sovereignty, security and national interests, and support our allies if required", Mr Putin said.

Russian Federation has said the drills are purely defensive in nature but North Atlantic Treaty Organisation has condemned them as a rehearsal for "large-scale conflict".

"This is why we will continue to strengthen our armed forces, to equip them in weapons and the latest equipment, and expand our military partnerships, international", he added in front of the soldiers the russians and chinese.

The war games are expected to take place at five ranges in Russia's Far East, and in the waters of the Sea of Japan, Bering Sea and the Sea of Okhotsk, between September 11-17.

Russian military figures said the exercise showed it had a renewed focus on combat readiness, which has sparked concern in western capitals.

The main stage of the Vostok-2018 strategic drills was held at the Tsugol firing range in the Trans-Baikal Region.

"Vostok demonstrates Russia's focus on exercising large-scale conflict. We do not have and we can not have any plans for aggression".

At the end of the exercises, Putin awarded medals to 10 servicemen of Russia, China and Mongolia, who distinguished themselves during the course.

"The worse Russian Federation behaves, the more Moscow convinces itself that it needs hard military power to protect itself against notional aggressors".
