During the exercise in the Novosibirsk region, servicemen of a missile regiment equipped with Yars mobile ground-based missile systems (PGRK) overcame a conditionally contaminated area.

When making a march to the field area, the support and security units received an introductory statement about the use of a conditional sabotage and reconnaissance group of poisonous substances at distant approaches to field positions.

Subdivisions of radiation, chemical and biological (RCB) protection on reconnaissance chemical vehicles took samples of air, soil, water and cordoned off the zone of conditional radioactive contamination, carried out a set of practical measures to decontaminate the area and roads.

After the withdrawal of equipment from the zone of conditional contamination, the specialists of the RCB for the protection of the missile compound carried out a special treatment of the units of the Yars missile systems. To solve this problem, a special RCB protection technique was used – a universal heat engine UTM-80M, with the help of which weapons, military and special equipment were disinfected, including the Yars PGRK.

In addition, the RCB protection units disinfected certain areas of the terrain and roads, tanks for temporary storage and transportation of water.
