The International Army Games kicked off in Russia last weekend at Khmelevka firing ground on the Baltic Sea coast in Kaliningrad Region in a bid to promote bonhomie among the participating countries.

A total of 10 countries -- Russia, India, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Belarus, Iran, Kazakhstan, China, Mongolia and Uzbekistan -- are participating in the games which will end on August 17, 2019.

The interesting part is that some of contests have been hosted by different countries.

 

India is hosting the fifth Army International Scout Masters Competition as part of the games in Jaisalmer .

Here are some of the glimpses from Russia and China.
