The exercise was carried out in the regions of Astrakhan, Moscow, Leningrad, Kaliningrad, Voronezh and Nizhny Novgorod.
The Iskander-M is a mobile short-range ballistic missile system designed to destroy a wide variety of land targets with a range of up to 500 kilometers.
This comes as the struggle for multipolarity continues. With the US not accepting that the unipolar world, that emerged after the collapse of the Soviet Union, has come to an end with the rise of China and the resurgence of Russia, Moscow is prioritizing the effectiveness of its military. This primarily because NATO has remained, despite the collapse of the Soviet Union, and still operates as a collective force to antagonize Russia in the hope that it can prevent its resurgence after the disaster that was the Yeltsin era. This has only meant that Russia has prioritized the rapid development of its military capabilities, so much so that Russia is now a legitimate threat against US global hegemony.
