A tactical live-fire exercise ended at the Lyaur training ground in Tajikistan. More than 500 servicemen of mountain motorized rifle units of the 201st Russian military base took part in it.

During the exercise, the subunits were raised on a training alert and marched into the concentration area under the conditions of the actions of sabotage groups of the conditional enemy. The servicemen on the move carried out maneuver-fire actions in blocking the settlement, as well as fire suppression of sabotage groups and the subsequent cleanup of the area occupied by the conditional enemy. At the main stage of the exercise, motorized riflemen worked out the tasks of maneuverable defense with the transition to the attack to defeat the enemy in the mountains.

As a result of the exercise, commanders of all grades were given a positive assessment in the organization of interaction and fire control of subordinate units.
