Russia to Hold the Largest Naval Exercise in Its Recent History Near Syria
 Part of channel(s): Syria (current event)

The Russian navy is about to stage its largest war exercise in a long
time — possibly the largest since before the breakup of the Soviet
Union. It’s a chance for President Vladimir Putin to show off his
military might, of course. But the exercise may also be a subtle warning
to the United States: Stay clear of waters that traditionally lie in
Russia’s sphere of influence.
The Russian defense ministry says its the “first time in decades
it’s launched naval exercises on this scale. The drills involve
warships from all of Russia’s fleets: “the Northern, Baltic, Black Sea
and Pacific,” noted a statement from the ministry. The exercise will be
reportedly held in late January, and involve amphibious landings in the Caucasus and naval exercises in the Mediterranean.
