    Yes, it’s immediately clear where we are really learning to fight !! With the Kazakhs, the exercises were almost there for the purpose of looking away, and here everything is as it should with missile launches and interceptions low and inconspicuous targets! And the composition is not a frail beech, wasp, tunguska, tornado, s-300!

    Yes, everything is cool, only I do not believe in the ability of the small army, which was made of our large army, to protect our vast country. Or have they already said goodbye to Siberia and decided not to splurge?

      These are the exercises of the expeditionary forces, which cannot be large for transport reasons. And in order to protect Siberia and the people in general, a large people's army is needed, the technical base of which was largely liquidated in order to bring about the condition of the Indians with the same result.
      Priority - internal troops.

        Volkhov, I did not speak about the teachings, but about our declining army.
        The teachings are useful even if one person is involved.
        And Siberia is a pity, it is difficult to realize that we are there in the overwhelming minority and in the balance, in essence, are holding it.
