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

According to previous estimates, about 300,000 troops were set to participate in the maneuvers.

"Russia is a peaceful country". A small contingent of Mongolian troops is taking part as well.

Accepting salutes from marching soldiers and tanks flying Chinese flags, Mr Putin said Russian Federation was a peaceful country that wanted co-operation with foreign states but needed to protect its and its allies' sovereignty.

On site, Mr Putin praised the "mastery" of the Russian army and its "ability to deal with potential threats".

Putin further stressed that he highly assessed the performance of the Russian army and navy in the Vostok-2018 drills.

"Today, the most active stage of the exercises is completed at the Tsugol training ground in Trans-Baikal territory. All units and formations have fulfilled the set tasks", the Russian president added.

"We will continue to strengthen our armed forces, equip them with latest weapons and technologies, to develop global military cooperation", he added.

Chinese troops have joined the Russians.

The Chinese media have described the People's Liberation Army involvement in the drills as the country's largest-ever dispatch of forces overseas for war games.

For example, a surprise inspection of the Northern Fleet took place in mid-August, while similar inspections of the Central and Eastern military districts happened later that month.

Russian Federation began its biggest war games since the fall of the Soviet Union on Tuesday close to its border with China, mobilising 300,000 troops in a show of force that will include joint exercises with the Chinese army.

He said that 87 observers from 57 countries have been invited to watch the drills.
