Latest Updates on the Ukraine/Russia Crisis

Whilst at its core a humanitarian crisis, the Russian invasion of Ukraine risks adding materially to existing global economic and supply challenges. We are likely heading into a period in which geopolitics will become a regular part of boardroom discussions. Recent developments have seen Russian companies make significant progress around the world to supply countries with equipment in various Aerospace, Defense & Security sectors. This means that countries dependent on Russian arms for their security calculations should review all purchases and clauses regarding their programs and payments.

The training involved ten transport and assault Mi-8AMTSh-V helicopters and approximately 100 personnel, including flight and engineering staff, as well as specialists from the search and rescue and parachute services.

During the exercise, the helicopter crew performed landing and take-off operations from unprepared mountain sites at high altitudes. The helicopters also flew over difficult terrain and delivered cargo on an external load to high-altitude sites.

The helicopter pilots used GEO-ONV1-01 night-vision goggles for the first time to complete missions during low light conditions and at night. The goggles helped them to navigate through the region without using external signals and internal lighting.

They completed over 100 sorties during the day and participated in more than five tactical missions at night.

The Su-35S and MiG-31 BM pilots of the Leningrad Army of the Air Force and Air Defence of the Western Military District (WMD) participated in separate group flights to hone their skills and efficiency.

Their tasks included take-off, landing, and flying a given course.

In August 2021, Russian and Chinese armed forces conducted a large-scale strategic exercise called Sibu/Interaction 2021 at the Qingtongxia training ground in the Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region of China.

The exercise involved 10,000 troops and was designed to improve military cooperation between the two forces to enhance their anti-terrorism capabilities.
