The Russian Defense Ministry has announced that it will intensify combat training in the armed forces 1.5 times during the summer months, in comparison to the war games that were held during the winter season.

“On June 1, 2015 the summer training period starts within the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. The intensity of the forces’ combat training will increase 1.5 times as compared to the winter period,” the ministry said in a statement.

The training is scheduled to last until the end of November and will be focused on joint tactical and cross-branch exercises. The planned drills are part of a series of Russian military maneuvers taking place amid international tensions over the Ukrainian crisis and NATO’s military buildup near Russia’s borders.
