The Russian Defence Ministry on Wednesday distributed video showing air defence systems participating in the nation's largest ever war games. Air defence battalions equipped with S-300 and S-400 missile systems as well as Pantsir-S1 systems have taken up new positions in Russia's Far East. Moscow said the week-long Vostok (East) 2018 manoeuvres will span vast expanses of Siberia and the Far East, the Arctic and Pacific Oceans, and involve some 300,000 Russian troops — nearly one-third of the country's one-million-strong military.
