Russia's largest military drill in over three decades, in which Chinese military forces are participating, started at Tsugol training range in Russia's Trans-Baikal region on Tuesday.

Code-named "Vostok-2018", the drill is thought to be Russia's largest military exercise since "Zapad-1981", which was held 37 years ago by the Soviet Union and involved some 100,000 to 150,000 troops.

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said earlier that this drill involves nearly 300,000 Russian troops, about 36,000 military vehicles, more than 1,000 aircraft and around 80 ships.
