Elite Russia troops to take part in India war games

Over 200 elite Russian mountain troops are set to participate with their Indian counterparts in anti-terror 'INDRA-2010' wargames scheduled for October 15-24 in Uttarakhand bordering China, the Defence Ministry said on Wednesday. Indian and Russian armed forces have been carrying out joint wargames since 2003 on biannual basis. The crack troops of the North Caucasus-based 34th Independent Mountain Brigade of the Russian Army will fly to Barelly on board military Ilyushin Il-76 transport aircraft, from where they will proceed by road to Chaubattia near Ranikhet, the base of Kumaon Regiment of the Indian Army.
