About 1,000 servicemen of the young conscription of the combined arms army of the Western Military District tested their skills in throwing combat grenades at the Pogonovo and Krinitsa training grounds in the Voronezh Region.

During the training, the servicemen studied the device and the procedure for using offensive hand grenades RGD-5. First, the servicemen threw a training grenade from a place, prone, from a knee and from a running start, and then a combat grenade from closed positions. Growth figures were prepared as targets, located at a distance of 25 to 60 m.

Between the throws, the servicemen trained to change firing positions, and also practiced providing first aid to comrades in case of injury from fragmentation grenades.

In total, about 1 thousand servicemen of the combined arms army of the Western Military District took part in the large-scale exercises. About 2.5 thousand training and combat grenades were used.
