In one of the biggest show of military might since the collapse of USSR, Russia mobilised 20,000 troops and state-of-the-art weapons in a drill, with President Dmitry Medvedev on Sunday asserting that his country is a “great” naval power capable of defending its interests.
Medvedev watched the impressive drills of the Russian Navy as part of the strategic Vostok-2010 (Orient-2010) wargames from the nuclear-powered “Pyotr Veliky” cruiser sailing in the sea of Okhotsk.
“Russia was and remains a great naval power capable of accomplishing tasks in the problem regions and is ready to defend its interests,” Medvedev said praising the servicemen for “displaying high professionalism.”
