Moscow, Oct 3: The joint Russian-Indian counter-terrorism exercise, Indra-2018, will begin on November 18 in Uttar Pradesh.

Russia’s Eastern Military District said on Wednesday in a statement said the two sides have agreed that the 11-day exercise from November 18-28 will be held at a training ground near the town of Babina in Uttar Pradesh. "The Russian side plans to send about 250 servicemen of motorized infantry units of the Eastern Military District, deployed in the Primorye Region [in the Far East]," the statement said.

The joint Russian-Indian counter-terrorism exercises, Indra, have been held regularly since 2003.

The previous military manoeuvers took place in 2017 in Russia’s Far Eastern region of Primorye and at naval training grounds of Russia’s Pacific Fleet. (UNI)
