West

Manoeuvres involving 13,000 Russian and Belarusian troops carried out war games against a "potential aggressor".

Poland, which has strained relations with both countries, was cast as the "potential aggressor". The documents state the exercises, code-named "West", were officially classified as "defensive" but many of the operations appeared to have an offensive nature.

The Russian air force practised using weapons from its nuclear arsenal, while in the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad, which neighbours Poland, Red Army forces stormed a "Polish" beach and attacked a gas pipeline.
