Large-scale military exercises of the Russian Federation: the expert explained why it plays into the hands of Ukraine
On September 1, large-scale military exercises “Vostok-22” began in the Russian Federation, in which China, India, Laos, Mongolia, Nicaragua, Syria and a number of former Soviet countries are taking part.
According to military expert Alexander Musienko, these exercises of the Russian Federation do not pose any threat to Ukraine, it’s even good that they began, because Russia attracted a certain number of its army to them.
Alexander Musienko, head of the Center for Military Legal Research, spoke about this for 24 channel.
“The exercises “Vostok-22″ pursue a propaganda goal. Russia thus wants to demonstrate that there are countries that are ready to take part in joint exercises with it, and it seems that Russia Russia is not in such total international isolation,” Musienko said.
According to him, the participating countries took part in the exercises in order to use Russia for their own purposes.
“Of course, everyone is trying to use Russia in their own way, because neither China nor India are interested in escalating and serious confrontation with the West. However, there is Russia that is ready. And in this direction, everyone wants to use it for their own interests,” the expert said.
