Russia and Belarus claim that the Zapad (“west”) exercises, which will be held in Belarus and parts of western Russia between 14 and 20 September, will involve about 12,700 troops.

Nato, however, believes many more troops will be involved. The prime minister of Estonia, Jüri Ratas, who joined Stoltenberg at the base in Tapa, about 75 miles (120km) from the Russian border, confirmed that his government believed about 100,000 Russian soldiers would be mobilised during the exercise.
