Russia Ukraine Crisis: Russia has deployed 30,000 Russian S-400 air defense systems and 12 Sukhoi-35 fighter jets in the exercise.
Amid tensions with Ukraine, Russia will continue intensive military exercises in Belarus for the next 10 days. The exercise is being held in Belarus, close to the Ukrainian border, in a war-like situation on the border. Russia and Belarus are trying to send a clear message to Ukraine and the West about how serious they are about the war, security experts have warned.
Russia has deployed 30,000 Russian troops, S-400 air defense systems and 12 Sukhoi-35 fighter jets in the exercise.
Russia has been sending troops to Belarus since mid-January. This exercise is called 'Allied Resolve'.
Remarkably, this is the first time since the Cold War that Russia has deployed such a large number of troops and weapons. This shows the importance of this practice. At the same time, Russia has deployed more than a million troops on the Ukrainian border.
Starting the active phase of war games from today
According to Al Jazeera, the "active phase" of the exercise between Russia and Belarus will begin on Thursday. Russia's dispute with the West over Ukraine has reached a tipping point, with both countries conducting war games. Western leaders have been working tirelessly to reduce this tension. Russia and Ukraine can also demonstrate their air power in this exercise. They will also conduct ground operations in response to attacks by neighboring NATO countries.
