MOSCOW (Worthy News)-- More than 155,000 servicemen, 4,000 armoured vehicles, 632 planes and helicopters and 84 vessels are taking part in the Vostok-2014 strategic exercises, the Russian News Agency [wp_colorbox_media url="http://en.itar-tass.com/russia/750850" type="iframe" hyperlink="ITAR-TASS"] reported.

The recent large-scale military exercise in Russia's Far East, Vostok-2014, demonstrated that the degree of combat preparedness in Russian troops has risen, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said Tuesday.

The minister said that although "final conclusions are yet to be made," the troops involved have demonstrated efficient command and "a better degree of combat preparedness."

Shoigu said that the Vostok-2014 exercise is nearly complete. "This large-scale event of operational and combat training of the Eastern Military District was a logical continuation of an unannounced combat readiness check carried out on the orders of the Supreme Commander Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin," the minister said. -- [wp_colorbox_media url="http://en.ria.ru/russia/20140923/193189578/Shoigu-About-Vostok-2014-Exercises-Russian-Troops-Show-Higher.html" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
