Russian President Vladimir Putin unexpectedly ordered a snap large-scale military exercise on Thursday as concerns persist over armed forces combat readiness.

Presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Putin issued instructions to perform the exercise in the southern Black Sea region at 4:00 a.m.

The unscheduled exercise is the second in the space of two months and follows a major shake-up at the top of a military establishment demoralized by persistent evidence of rampant corruption.

The Black Sea exercise was set to involve up to 7,000 military personnel – including rapid deployment, airborne and special task forces – and more than 30 warships.

Peskov said 36 warships would be drawn from Black Sea bases in Sevastopol and Novorossiisk and that some 250 combat armored vehicles would be used in the drill.
