"The maneuvers are planned to involve about 500 troops from a unit in the Russian Eastern Military District located in the Republic of Buryatia and up to 350 servicemen of the Mongolian armed forces" the spokesman said.
The drills’ active stage envisages using a considerable number of aircraft, in particular, Mil Mi-24 Hind attack helicopters, Mi-8 AMTSh military and transport helicopters and Sukhoi Su-25 Frogfoot ground attack aircraft, the spokesman said.
The second round of consultations will be held in April in Ulan Bator, the spokesman said.
