Russia has expanded the number of troops taking part in military exercises across the country.
Speaking in Moscow, General Valeri Gerasimov said a total of 80.000 and 220 warplanes were being deployed to the Arctic, the southern Caucasus and the contested Sakhalin islands (in the Pacific Ocean close to Japan), and other regions.
Russia’s show of force is believed to be in response to NATO’s build-up of tanks and military vehicles in the Baltic states.
NATO has said it will defend member states which potentially may be vulnerable to Russian military action.
