Vostok-2018 operation's transparency 'unprecedented': Russian Defence Minister

Moscow, Oct 11 (UNI) Russian Defence Minister Sergey Shoigu has said that strategic Vostok-2018 maneuvers in September were unprecedented in terms of transparency.
"I stress that the maneuvers were unprecedented in terms of their transparency. The international community had been provided all information beforehand on their plot and participants," Defence Minister Shoigu said on Wednesday, TASS reported.
Briefings were held at the Russia-NATO Council, at a forum of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe and also for foreign military attaches, Shoigu said.
"Shortly before the beginning of maneuvers, the top brass had informed more than 80 foreign military attaches and 187 journalists about the goals and tasks of the upcoming steps of troops and forces," the minister said.
According to Shoigu, the drills were covered by 326 Russian and foreign media outlets. Live TV broadcast of combat actions and review of troops was held from the Tsugol training ground in the Far East’s Transbaikal Region. A total of 87 observers from 59 countries monitored the drills.
