“A joint protocol was signed in Vladivostok on the first planned conference of the Indra-2016 joint exercises,” Capt. 1st Rank Roman Martov said.
 

He said consultations would be held in May in India where the dates of the exercises would be specified.

“This year troops from the Eastern Military District plan to participate in three large exercises with the Indian Armed Forces, which include the Indra-Neva-2016 with the Pacific Fleet, AviaIndra-2016 with the participation of the Air Force and air defense systems, and Indra-2016,” Martov added.

In the course of the past Indra – 2015 joint exercise held at the Mahajan range, the military units performed training on practical actions within the counter-terrorist operations.

The special attention was paid to improving cooperation between the Russian and Indian servicemen acting in small tactic groups within blocking and liquidating simulated illegal armed groups.
