India, Russia to hold joint military drill
Moscow: India and Russia will hold a
joint military drill nicknamed Indra-2010 with the involvement
of more than 150 Russian servicemen from the motorised
mountain infantry brigade.
A Russian army delegation is currently in India to
finalise the arrangements.
"The INDRA-2010 war games will be held on the Indian
soil in autumn, in which 150 Russian servicemen from the
motorised mountain infantry brigade will take part," Land
Forces spokesman Col Oleg Yushkov here said.
India and Russia have been holding joint war games for
several years now with the involvement of all the three
services of their armed forces.
In 2007 and 2008 the paratroopers from the two nations
had carried out joint anti-terror war games in Agra and
Russia`s Pskov region bordering on NATO-member Estonia.
Russia, which has raised independent motorised
(mountain) brigade in the wake of militancy and its frontiers
rolling back to North Caucasus following the Soviet collapse,
is keen to learn from India`s experience of mountain warfare
and training expertise.
