The South African Army will soon hold military excersizes with Russia and China.

This was revealed by Foreign Affairs Minister, Naledi Pandor, after she met Russian Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov.

The excersizes will start on 24 February and end on 27 February at the east coast.

The 24th of February marks the day when Russia invaded Ukraine.

The meeting between Pandor and Lavrov was held amid protests by activists who are opposed to the war in Ukraine.
