Around 1,000 paratroopers jumped out of Ilyushin Il-76 aircraft during massive five-day drills taking place in the Pskov Oblast, in the west of Russia, on Wednesday.

Besides paratroopers, 20 combat vehicles were dropped by parachute out of the planes. When the troops, tanks and other vehicles landed, they began a 90-kilometer march to a shooting range.
