Gen. Petr Pavel, head of NATO’s Military Committee, said over the weekend that NATO was working to re-establish military-to-military communications with Russia, to try to avoid any “unintended consequences of potential incidents during the exercise.”The week-long exercise — named Zapad, the Russian word for “west” — is taking place in areas near the Baltic Sea. It involves thousands of personnel, tanks and aircraft.CBS News correspondent Elizabeth Palmer is near St. Petersburg, Russia, where Russian troops are taking part in the massive exercise which she says is as much a work-out for the Russian armed forces as it is a spectacle.The pictures of the action released by the Russian military are intended for broadcast around the world. The message, especially to the U.S. and its NATO allies, is that taking on Russia would be a mistake.
