The exercise will involve multiple launches of intercontinental ballistic missiles and cruise missiles and is an annual Russian exercise conducted with the main goal of sending “clear messages” to the competitors of the Russian Federation.

President Vladimir Putin, according to the spokesman of the Kremlin, Dmitry Peskov, will monitor these exercises from the operations centre of the Russian Ministry of Defense and will personally oversee the launch of the missiles.

During talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow on Friday, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko stated according to sources that he would also take part in overseeing the Russian military exercises.

The exercises, according to the Ministry of Defense of Russia, have long been planned to assess the readiness of Russia’s military administration and personnel, as well as the reliability of the country’s nuclear and conventional weapons systems.
