The two-day drill was designed to guide military command organs from both sides to optimise their command activities, which are related to intelligence, decision-making, planning, and control and assessment. For the first time, a sub-command for Russian officers has been established within the joint command, and a command information system specially designed for the two militaries has been applied.
