RUSSIA admits its 300,000 man war-games which begin on 9/11/18 are directly aimed at US aggression

RUSSIA has admitted its 300,000 man war games which are the biggest of their kind in 36 years are directly aimed at the US.

Vladimir Putin’s military bosses announced yesterday plans for Vostok-2018 – the largest drills of their kind since the height of the Cold War.

Russia will mobilse more than 300,000 soldiers, 36,000 vehicles, 1,000 warplanes and two whole fleets in the exercise, which kicks off on September 11.

Defence chief Frants Klintsevich told reporters the military exercises were meant to “cool down some hotheads” in the US.

The exercises comes amid a period of major tensions between the West and Moscow.

Rows over Putin’s involvement in Syria, the annexation of Crimea, NATO build-up in the Baltic, the novichok poisoning of the Skripals, and alleged interference in the US election have plunged relations to new lows.

“NATO [is] moving east in order to surround our country” - Klintsevich

Klintsevich, first deputy chairman of defence and security, drew parallels between the current tensions and the Cold War.

He said: “[The drills] will be quite handy in the context of a very difficult situation in the world

"First and foremost, I mean the unprecedented pressure that the US is exerting on Russia."

"The 1981 drills, which I had the opportunity to participate in, cooled down some hotheads in their time. Now the upcoming Vostok-2018 drills will fulfill the same role.”

Klintsevich also described US sanctions against Russia as a “preventative strike”.

He said: “It is an attempt to hinder its inevitable rise, its transformation into a leading global power."

"This is an obvious addition to NATO moving east in order to surround our country.”

NATO and Putin have been locked in a war of words in the past few weeks, as the alliance admitted it is “no match” of Russia in eastern Europe.

WAR GAMES: Russia will deploy 300,000 soldiers in Vostok-2018

Russia will mobilise its huge forces across the central and eastern military districts – and will at points be joined by troops from China and Mongolia.

Putin has one of the largest militaries in the world, with almost 3.6 million military personnel, 4,000 planes, 20,000 tanks, and 352 warships.

It is second only to the US in firepower – and is currently being given a big investment boost by Kremlin.

Sergei Shoigu – Russia’s defence minister – suggested Vostok-2018 could end up being even larger than the drills in 1981.

Russia and the West each regularly accuse each other of aggression – with Putin’s righthand man warning of a “terrible conflict”. 

Moscow's forces carry out huge drills within their borders and NATO deploys troops around the Baltic and Black Sea.

And meanwhile, Russia has deployed 10 warships to the Mediterranean amid rising fears of a military clash with Syria.

Putin’s government have warned of an impending chemical incident that could trigger further US strikes on ally Bashar al-Assad.
