Over 10,000 Troops To Take Part In Major Joint China-Russia War Drills

China's defense ministry on Thursday unveiled that the PLA military is set to host major joint military drills with Russia in early August - to include more than 10,000 troops from both countries in China's Ningxia Hui autonomous region, in the north-central part of the country.

"The purpose of this exercise is to consolidate and develop a comprehensive strategic partnership of cooperation between China and Russia," defense ministry spokesman Wu Qian announced in a press briefing.

At a moment both countries are experiencing deteriorating relations with the United States, including Beijing increasingly in a sanctions tit-for-tat battle with Washington over Hong Kong, the spokesman additionally said, "It will also further demonstrate the determination and ability of both sides to combat terrorist forces and jointly maintain regional peace and security."

Russia for its part is currently in a standoff with the US over cyberattack allegations and threats. President Biden actually said in a speech this week that potentially a future cyberattack scenario couple end up in a "real shooting war with a major power." No doubt, he had primarily Russia and China in mind.
