According to previous estimates, about 300,000 troops were set to participate in the maneuvers. A small contingent of Mongolian troops is taking part as well.

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

He emphasized that "Russia is a peaceful nation", but noted that the country needs to strengthen its military capability to "be ready to protect its sovereignty, security and national interests, and, if necessary, support our allies".

"Today, the most active stage of the exercises is completed at the Tsugol training ground in Trans-Baikal territory". You demonstrated the high-level performance.

"This is why we will continue to strengthen our armed forces, to provide them with cutting edge arms and equipment and develop our worldwide military partnerships", he said. Additionally, military cooperation will be further developed.
