The Russian Defence Ministry released footage on Saturday from the large-scale Vostok 2022 joint military drills. The maneuvers are intended to demonstrate that Moscow has sufficient military might for massive exercises even as its troops are engaged in the military operation in Ukraine.

The Russian Defense Ministry said the Vostok 2022 exercise will be held at seven firing ranges in Russia's far east and the sea of Japan.

More than fifty thousand troops and over five thousand weapons units including 140 aircraft and 60 warships would be involved in the exercise.
