As part of the control check during the winter period of training, the personnel of the special purpose unit of a separate guards airborne assault unit stationed in Ulan-Ude (Republic of Buryatia) successfully completed all the tasks in the course of passing the standards for mountain training.

The complex control lesson consisted of three stages: checking theoretical knowledge, checking practical basic skills of mountain preparation and passing the route on a rocky mountain area.

At the first stage, knowledge of the peculiarities of mountainous terrain, the influence of natural factors of mountainous terrain on the human body, on the tactics of actions of subunits during marches and in various types of combat, as well as on the operation of parts and mechanisms of weapons were tested.

Then the servicemen showed the members of the commission basic mountain training skills: coiling of ropes, putting on mountain equipment, knitting and guiding the crossings.

The most difficult stage of the check was the passage of the route on a mountainous rocky area of ​​the terrain. The ascent route was laid in such a way that, on a relatively small section of the rock, the commandos were able to demonstrate the skills of single and group rock climbing, work in a bundle, ascents and descents on ropes and passing other obstacles.
