The current checking of the alert status of the Russian Armed Forces is believed to be the biggest in post-Soviet history. It started at 01:00 Moscow time on July 13.
The 5th tank brigade of the 36th army of the Eastern Military District deployed in Ulan-Ude, the capital of Buryatia, is to march to the Tsugol testing ground in the Chita region.
