Russia has rolled out cruise missiles, multiple rocket launchers and tanks – at massive military drills in Crimea.
Dozens of journalists were invited to a remote firing range at the Black Sea coast – for a display of elaborate war games involving paratroopers, tanks, cruise missiles launched from a submarine and the S-400 anti-aircraft missile system.
They are some of the largest exercises Russia has held for years.
Russia annexed the Crimean peninsula from Ukraine in April 2014.
