Russia's military forces have begun a large exercise involving around 250 aircraft and 12,000 service personnel.

The ministry described the four-day drill as a "massive surprise inspection", to check combat readiness.

The tests began on the same day as Nato and some of its partners started an Arctic training exercise.

Russia's actions in Ukraine and incursions into Western airspace have led to rising tensions with the West.
