- China And Russia Launch BIGGEST Ever Joint Naval Drills in BRUTAL Show of Strength

MOSCOW and Beijing have begun eight days of naval drills involving Chinese bombers, Russian submarines and marines from both navies in the hotly-contested South China Sea.
Live-fire drills and landing operations will form part of the largest operation ever performed together by the two countries. Among the activities being carried out is an “island seizing” operation which will raise fears in Washington that both military superpowers are readying themselves for conflict in the disputed waters close to China. The joint exercise also paves the way for China and Russia to establish a formal military partnership which would limit US influence in the region.
China and Russia have held similar views on many major issues including the crisis in Syria, putting them at odds with most major Western powers. Anti-submarine drills and a complex rescue operation will also be carried out this week as both nation’s test their ability to respond to a naval attack. Joint Sea-2016 will feature surface ships, submarines, fixed-wing aircraft, ship-borne helicopters and commandos from both militaries.
