Servicemen of the Central Military District repulsed an attack by a mock enemy on a temporary pontoon bridge during an exercise in the Republic of Bashkortostan.

According to the plan, the enemy carried out a raid on the checkpoint in order to break through to the 70-meter pontoon bridge and further undermine it. The alert forces, under the cover of the BTR-80 armored personnel carriers, engaged in battle. Reinforcement units came to their aid. Using concentrated fire from Ak-74 assault rifles, SVD sniper rifles, Pecheneg machine guns and RPG-7V grenade launchers, the servicemen successfully completed the task.
