Russian ground forces plan to participate in nine military exercises with foreign forces in 2021, the Russian Defense Ministry reported on Friday.

Russia plans to organize six bilateral exercises in its territory with Algeria, India, Pakistan, Laos, Vietnam, and Sri Lanka respectively, the ministry said in a statement.

Also on Russian territory, two multilateral exercises will involve members of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) and the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CTSC).

A joint military exercise between Russia and Mongolia will be organized in Mongolian territory.

“All these maneuvers will aim to maintain peace and the fight against terrorism,” the statement said.
