The International Army Games (ARMY) strengthen trust between the armies of different countries and serve to develop cooperation for global security, said Russian Defense Minister General of the Army Sergei Shoigu.

“From year to year, ARMYs are becoming more spectacular and representative. The geography of the participants is expanding, the number of competitions is increasing, the complexity of the exercises being performed is growing, ”he said in a video message at the closing ceremony of ARMI-2021.

Shoigu noted that the competition not only carries the charge of an uncompromising struggle, but also fosters a sense of camaraderie and mutual respect in servicemen, a willingness, despite intense rivalry, to come to the aid of other teams.

“I am sure that such qualities are a solid basis for building trust between the armies of different countries, serve the development of constructive cooperation in the interests of ensuring global security,” he added.
