U.S. Army General and NATO Supreme Allied Commander Curtis Scaparrotti told the Washington Post while on a visit to Tirana, Albania, that the size of Zapad 17 had indeed exceeded Moscow’s prior estimations. “It’s following in line with what we’ve seen with these annual exercises in the past,” he said. “They’re usually very large. They’re usually initially defensive in nature but also have an offensive portion thereafter that looks to me like a rehearsal of an attack,” Scaparrotti added.
