NOVO-OGAREVO, July 23 (Itar-Tass) - Over 60 military attaches want to study in detail the tasks and progress of surprise military exercises in the Eastern Military District, Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu told Russian President and Supreme Commander-in-Chief Vladimir Putin here on Tuesday.
The president recalled about his order that he gave, announcing a surprise drill, that is to inform the partners timely about these plans. “Right after your order was received to conduct a surprise drill in the Eastern Military District, involving the formations and military units of the Central Military District, we naturally informed all neighbours, all our partners in the East,” Shoigu said.
“Moreover, right on the next day we invited all the attaches (who wanted to study the drills - Itar-Tass) along with all our neighbours. Over 60 people gathered, we told them and showed all that we were planning to do within these large-scale military exercises,” he underlined.
