The exercises have seen divisions with more than 300 military personnel taking positions near the capes of Skalisty and Tolsty, reported Sputnik News Service.

'The logical completion of the field exercises will be live-fire drills of the Redut and Rubezh missiles in the Pacific Ocean,' said Captain Roman Martov of the Russian Defense Ministry's Eastern Military District.
