A group of Russian military experts flies to China Tuesday to check preparations for upcoming Russian-Chinese military exercises
The Chinese and Russian military officials will announce the commencement of the exercises in Vladivostok on Aug. 18. The first phase of the exercises will be held Aug. 18-19 in the form of military-political discussions between chiefs-of-staff in Vladivostok in the Russian Far East. During the second phase, from Aug. 23-25, Russian and Chinese combat ships will conduct joint maneuvers near the port of Qingdao on the Shandong Peninsula in the Yellow Sea, focusing on anti-terrorism and piracy. The exercises envision three "provisional" states being delineated on Russian and Chinese territory. A serious ethnic conflict involving armed clashes will occur in one of these states. The state will then appeal to the UN and neighboring countries to help it stabilize the political situation. The Chinese troops will be posed as a "conditional enemy." Up to 10,000 military personnel from both sides are expected to participate in the maneuvers. Russia will deploy about 1,800 men, a group of ships from the Pacific Fleet, including a large ASW ship, a destroyer and a BDK-11 large amphibious ship. Russia is also sending 17 long-range aviation planes, fighters, transport planes and a company of marines.
