Russia and India have agreed to hold joint war games involving all military branches this year. The agreement was signed in Vladivostok, with further details scheduled to be discussed next month. Consultations on the biggest of the three drills, Indra-2016, will be held in May, the head of the Russian Defense Ministry’s Eastern Military District’s press service said on Thursday.
“A joint protocol was signed in Vladivostok to hold the first planning conference for the Indra-2016 joint exercises,” Captain Roman Martov said, as cited by RIA Novosti. The two sides will set the exact dates and organizational details of the training. The three major military drills the Eastern Military District will take part in this year are the Indra-Neva-2016 naval training of the Indian Navy with the Russian Pacific Fleet, the AviaIndra-2016 training of air force and air defense systems, and the major Indra-2016 combined arms training, Martov said.
