Russia will send over 250 servicemen from the Eastern Military District to take part in the annual Indra-2013 joint anti-terrorism exercise with India, the district’s press service said. This year, the joint drills will be held in October at the Mahajan field firing range in India.

“The exercise will involve over 250 servicemen from the Eastern Military District and the same number of troops from the Indian armed forces,” the press service said in a statement on Monday.

According to the statement, the goal of the upcoming exercise is to practice joint planning and execution of anti-terrorist missions in semidesert environment.

The final planning stage for Indra-2013 will be held in the Indian city of Bikaner in August.

Since 2003, India and Russia have conducted six of the INDRA series joint ground and naval exercises. The last such exercise was held between Russian and Indian army units in August 2012 in the Siberian republic of Buryatia.
