Russian - Indian joint military exercises will take place in India on Oct. 10 - 20.

Russia has already sent three transport planes carrying troops and materiel to India.

 

Three Ilyushin planes took off from an airfield near the north western city of Pskov carrying over 100 men from an airborne division, as well as three military vehicles and more than 20 tons of equipment and supplies, ITAR-TASS news agency reported, citing Air Force commander General Vladimir Mikhailov.

The Indra 2005 exercises were set up by a protocol signed by the Russian and Indian defense ministries and by agreements concluded during a Russian military delegationís visit to India in May.

The exercises correspond with UN rules, international law and principles of respect for sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of other countries, the agency reported.

The exercises, with an anti - terror theme, will involve naval ships and airborne troops. Russian Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov said late last month that a nuclear submarine and a group of Pacific Fleet ships had left for the Indian Ocean.

The manoeuvres will follow August exercises held by Russia jointly with China, which some analysts said appeared to be aimed at demonstrating the capabilities of Russian military equipment.
